Wine is part of the major food groups… right????

The soft glow and soothing aroma of a coconut candle and a nice glass of chianti and a date with the DVR!
How romantic!!!

Tonight the Hubs and I went to Newberry’s Yards of Ale located on Main Street in Stroudsburg to meet up for Happy Hour with the Pocono’s Young Professionals Group. There was a nice show of people from engineers to financial advisors to teachers and nurses and everything in between!! It was nice to meet new people and mingle with others at this Irish pub inspired bar that offers a wide variety of micro brews and craft beers (many on the more hoppy end). Tonight I opted for a crisp glass or 2 of Pinot Grigio. Delish!
After mingling and talking to other fellow fur parents. (Yes, we showed pictures and videos of our fur babies and are planning on a doggy play date… Don’t judge!) okay who am I kidding, judge away- ain’t nobody got time for that!
We decided to take a look at the menu and order some dinner.
I went with the grilled chicken salad with bacon, avocado, and gouda. The Hubs went with a BBQ chicken and bacon personalized pizza. Both were scrumptious!

The pizza was so delicious, I couldn’t get a picture in before the Hubs ate a slice!!!

After eating we explored the two levels that Newberry’s Yards of Ale has to offer. Like a cool basement hangout game room.

We also checked out the classic cigar smoking lounge, which I absolutely loved!!!!

We had a lot of fun. Too bad there wasn’t a ping pong table or we would have been there forever!
I love how Yards of Ale has an outside dinning space and an open airy feeling with the wall to ceiling sliding glass doors.

On the way out the sky turned gray and a storm was starting to roll in. Perfect cuddle weather!!! 😉

I’d like to think of myself as a good cook. The hubs and I are also trying to eat more at home and make some use out of our new kitchen. (Don’t worry we still go out at LEAST 2x per week- and we do have a night out planned for Thursday). With that said last week I decided to play housewife and prepare a home cooked meal that I knew the hubs would LOVE.
I started with a loin of pork that was seasoned with honey, cinnamon, and a hint of hot sauce for a little kick.
Next, I cut up 3 large apples and added a touch of cinnamon sugar.
After that, I threw that baby in the oven.
While the pork was baking, I decided to whip up some homemade mashed potatoes. I used red skinned potatoes, crushed garlic cloves, real unsalted butter, organic milk, and of course CHEESE!!! The whole meal prep and cooking time took a whopping 45min. and the results were delicious!

I love experimenting with food and this dinner turned out great, but I am sure the next time I make it- it will turn out differently. Who needs recipes! 😛

Well this is the married life. While the hubs is away the wine comes out to play!
When all else fails and there is no one around to bug. I did exactly what a good housewife would do. Turn on The Style network and flip flop back and forth from E to Style. Then go searching in my growing collection for the perfect bottle of wine.
Here was my wine-o adventure before I found the perfect spot on the couch with the remote in hand! take that hubs!! All the glorious fashion and trash TV I can handle and a delish glass or bottle of Gascon Malbec from Argentina voted #1 in The Wall Street Journal.
