The statistics are still dismal though- Nearly 1 out of 4 children in America -more than 17 million- struggle with hunger.
Apfel eis-aka Apple Ice Wine from Harvard, MA is delightfully sweet, with no added sugar. It takes over 80 apples to make each bottle! A very slow fermentation at cold temperatures keeps the sugar from the apples to the final product. I had this in Montreal several years ago, but love seeing a local variety!For every bottle of flipflop wine purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need. How cool is that??
We definitely left feeling satisfied. Taste of the Nation was a perfect kickoff to a great weekend. I was again blow away by the beauty and athleticism of dance at my friend Dana's recital on friday. Then I woke up bright and early on Saturday to head to the Boston Marathon Expo whereNext I headed to one of the Runner's World seminars.
You can find me today on Beacon St-cheering my heart out for Eric, Matt, Kerri, Melissa and Molly!! Good luck to Everyone!!
Have you ever watched or run the Boston Marathon? What about met someone you only know online? (and no, that doesn't just apply to online dating!!)
