Fun Stuff

Happy March 1! I actually wore a spring trench coat to work today, and I wasn’t cold. I am more than hopeful that spring is coming sooner rather than later!

With longer days and warmer weather coming, I know that I will be getting out of the house more, going out after work and on weekends. With just about perfect timing, a PR agency for Morton’s contacted me last week to let me know about their monthly Uncorked Wine Tasting Series. Right up my alley, wouldn’t you say? ;)

If you are in Boston, and would like to check them out, the schedule is below. As of right now, I am pretty sure that I will be attending the April 26 Champagne and sparkling wine event. . . if you want to join me let me know! If you live in another city, I would recommend checking their site to see if there is a Morton’s near you. Our first visit was for my husband’s 30th birthday, and it was such a spectacular experience that we can not wait to go back!

I also received an email from an agency for NBC regarding their new game show hosted by Guy Fieri, Minute to Win It.

The press release from NBC says:

“Minute To Win It,” hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri (“Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”), features competitors participating in a series of simple, yet nerve-wracking, games that can lead to a $1 million prize.

You can view the entire press release here.

I know that I am a big fan of Guy Fieri’s big, fun personality (not to mention all of the ridiculously mouthwatering meals he eats on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives)

The show premieres on Sunday, March 14 from 7-9 ET. I will definitely be checking it out and would love to know what you think!

I will be back tomorrow morning with an amaaaaazing macaroni and cheese recipe, so check back! :)

    Thanks for letting us know about the new show. Eric and I are big fans of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives!

    Those sounds so much fun! I don’t know if I am more jealous of that or that you can sport a trench and not be cold. I am ready to hang up my pea coat for the season!!
