Don't give up, it's your blog, there's no rush to do anything unless you want to.

May 11th Piney Orchard Street Festival

We went to our local community were they have a street festival, I think this is the 4th year, and it gets better and better all the time.

We volunteered to do set-up and balloons.... David and I filled 500 latex balloons. I was tired of them before we were finished.

But here are some photos from the day...

May 18th Wine in the Woods...

David and I again volunteered for the set-up with a winery that will be having a tasting booth and selling wine at the festival.

This is a two day festival and it is all day both days. There are people feeling no pain when they leave there.

This was the 21st annual and we have been working the last 4....

We like to pour and set up for a winery called Port Of Lenoardtown. It is a co-op winery, they receive 100% of their grapes from local farmers, but it is a co-op of farmers who produce the wine. To me it is a really neat operation.

Here is a list of all the different wineries at this years festival.... Each one was pouring 4-12 different wines and your taste was all free included in the ticket to get into the festival.


Basignani Winery
Berrywine Plantations/Linganore Winecellars

Boordy Vineyards
Bordeleau Vineyards & Winery

May 18th- Meet up with Alumni Group

We try to meet up with a local chapter of my DH's alumni group here in Maryland.

We had dinner at a place called Rams Head Tavern in Savage Maryland.



I started the night off with Dominion Oak Barrel Stout, an American-style sweet stout dry hopped with vanilla beans & oak chips.

Then for dinner I had
jammin Salmon- Grilled filet of salmon served over mashed potatoes,
topped with lump crab and large shrimp and finished with jalapeno béarnaise.



David had the SWORDFiSH CATALiNA
Line caught swordfish grilled and topped with ginger-lime compound butter. Served with rice and vegetables.



This made for a very long day and it was time to go home...

it might have something to do with the fact, that it is the same cruise ship that caught on fire this week.

The Granduer of the Seas....
Yikes! That would freak me out!

That sandwich was amazing... The scallops were cooked to perfection. on Sourdough bread (Made in house) and some light dill mayo on the bread.

I would eat there again no doubt.
That scallop sandwich looked delish!

I don't think I'd want to eat goat from "Aunt Iffy's Kitchen. "Iffy" no es bueno!
The pictures of the festival look fun, and the fish pictures look yummy.

I didn't know they have food at Wine in the Woods. Lots of delicious places too. But then dinner afterwards would certainly make for a long day.

The street festival looks fun, the fried Oreo sign popped right out at me. I've never tried a fried Oreo
