April is…


If you think that there’s nothing going on but cold weather in April, think again. April is Michigan Wine Month
In a couple of weeks, some of my girlfriends and I will start our monthly Wine Tour Lunch.  This tour usually starts around 8 AM, when all the kids have been dropped off in school.  We drive up M-22 and we stop and shop and taste wine and buy too many bottles.  Then of course we have to have lunch.  We love stopping at Boondocks in Glen Arbor.  They make a really great Bloody Mary. Speaking of Bloody Marys,  at the Cove in Fishtown, they serve a “Chubby Mary” which …well, see for yourself:

chubby-mary

Do I look like I am in love?

If you like fish like I like fish, you’ll love that drink – a bloody Mary with a smoked chub in it, yumm.  They list it on the drinks menu and on the appetizer menu and they will serve it to you with crackers and fork and knife.  It’s delicious.

Back to Michigan wines. here we are at Chateau Fontaine

Here we are at Chateau Fontaine looking like we had quite a bit of wine already.
