But how, you say, and why? In support of the Emilio-Romagna region who experienced 2 earthquakes earlier this year that left no cheese wheel unturned, the world is coming together to eat the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese of the region. Eat your way to heaven. I love it!

She says: This is so off topic – and yet so important. Did you know that over 1 million children in California are being raised by their grandparents for any number of different reasons, death, ill-health, drugs, etc. With a simple click of your mouse, you can assist the organization “Grandparents as Parents” in winning a new Toyota.
When I learned my friend Jennifer’s parents were raising her sister’s child, I was so surprised. And then embarrassed that I didn’t know there are thousands of granparents providing the primary care for their grandchildren. Learn about 10 “something new”s every day.
Please take 30 seconds to join us and CLICK and VOTE for Grandparents as Parents to win a new Toyota for their organization! Thank you.
Does wine count as a serving of fruit?
She says: I totally have this one, honey!
He says: You realize of course that we are not doctors of anything, right? And we have no authority to speak on this subject?
She says: Yes.
She continues: Remember the day we wrote down the math? So to answer this question, I refer to my mostly sober notes:
Does wine count as a serving of fruit? Yes. Several servings actually. The almost accurate math:
1 bottle = approx. 2.4 pounds of grapes
1 bottle pours approx 4 glasses of wine
2.4 lbs of grapes divided by 4 glasses of wine = .6 lbs of grapes.
Ergo you are drinking .6 lbs of grapes and that is at least 2 servings of grapes in a respectable household
He says: And in the dis-respectable household?
She says: I’m not one to judge. They can eat as much as they want.
She says: I can’t cook worth a darn, but let me tell you – I’m the friend to have around when it’s time to CLEAN! How to clean wine glasses? Start with the very different, very effective foam brushes… Click to read more about how to clean wine glasses – and still have a life.
She says: Now your wine glasses are clean – what about drying the wine glasses? Air-drying your clean wine glasses leads to spots. Blech… a hassle when it’s time to serve wine again. Drying w/no-lint cotton leaves LINT and takes 4-ever! Drying in the dishwasher almost always leaves spots, too. It’s simple, when setting your table, you want wine glasses without spots, right? Right. This micro-fiber cloth will save you a ton-o-time. Click to read about how I get spot-free wine glasses with this cloth. Yeah, for now they’re made in China (sorry about that) but as soon as they’re made in America, I’ll get you that link!
She says: Decanting wine is a whole ‘nother job! I learned how to do it “properly” a long time ago and quite frankly, until we hire the butler I so rightly deserve, it ain’t happening. SO…what’s a modern American “girl-without-a-butler” to do? Find the right wine accessory of course!
This groovy top-of-the-bottle wine decanter and aerator will serve you and your wine guests very well. If the wine is too young and jumpy (like a certain hormonal teenager at your neighbor’s house) use the Soiree. It will smooth out the too young wine in a New York minute. If the wine is older and begs for decanting, and opening up for an hour (like you have that much time) use the Soiree. Click here and learn more…
