How are you celebrating the inherit freedoms this country has given us?
I thought I was going to stay home and cook, chill, read a book, write a little, strum some strings but we got invited to go to a 4th of July celebration in Coronado. Whatever the family wants is what big poppa gon do!
At home we started the morning with a an almost all 'Merican style breakfast. We made egg sandwiches. The ingredients: Canadian bacon, free range eggs, English muffins, and a delicious mild spicy heirloom tomato and habanero salsa as the spread (instead of mayo). I washed each bite down with a morning mild roast coffee from Portland that I am still sippin' on as I write this blog and now is all good in the neighborhood
Our morning got rocked by a 6.4 earthquake with an epicenter out of Bakersfield, California, just a couple hundred miles northeast from San Diego. Do you live in SoCal? Did you feel the quake too?
But seriously, how different are the times now compared to 1774? I say a lot.
Lets celebrate the freedom of choosing our job, to follow our life's call, to gather with friends and family and eat whatever we want (lets not forget about the environment though), and most importantly, lets not forget not everyone in this country has the same freedoms and that some basic human life needs like clean air and water are not available for everyone. So, what can we do about the inequalities found in some areas that still cloud our country? Honestly the only thing that comes to mind is the freedom you might have to vote and choose those who will represent you, all of us, not just some of us.
In just a couple of days, we'll be gathering at Cueva Bar for our Wine Club Wine Tasting 5.0. Can you believe its been five months already since we started the wine club? Everyone is welcome to join these tastings and there is no commitment to buy any wine bottles. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this preview of two of the wines we will be savoring. On the left, a White Pinot Noir, what?
On the right, a Sicilian Rosso that's to wine for!
To attend, go here to buy your $5 ticket(s).
