Key West Spring?

Oh yes, we are somewhat warm today, low 70's. Have spent most of the day trying to figure out the blog situation. I can tell you one thing, I am learning alot about blogging!

Wanted to share with you a good inexpensive (cheap) wine I had last night. It was a white wine, my favorite choice, from Modesto, Ca. Barefoot Cellars Sauvignon Blanc. It has a sticker on the top saying it was a Top 10 Wine at the 2004 Pacific Coast Oyster Wine Competition in Shelton, Wa. So I assume it is good with oysters. I had it with a wonderful stir fry that my son Chris prepared. Chris has been a marvelous chef for the past, let's see, 15 years now. He graduated from the CIA in New York and has been a chef in Cincinnati, Sonoma, Ca., and North Carolina. He is currently visiting with us in Key West for the winter months (do you blame him). It is pretty cool having a chef around the house !

Our cherry tomato plant is looking a little strung out. It has fruit on it but, I don't know about the longevity of the poor thing. We had quite a bit of rain a week or so ago and I think it drank just a bit too much. The rest of the guys look OK. The cayenne peppers are cranking on but not red yet. Hope those guys get moving as those are my favorite peppers to cook with.

That is it from the deep south for today! Hope everyone is having a great day.
