Happy Halloween.

Nothing says Halloween in these parts like a late harvest Sauvignon blanc, spicy pumpkin and cream cheese muffins...and a few spooky plastic Halloween rings.
Happy Halloween.

Dreary rainy winter weather has come early this year, but the end of October definitely marks a shift of seasons here in Vinoland. Besides squash delights, it also brings out the famous Vinogirl chili and other hearty winter meals. This provides an opportunity to open some of those big, full bodied red wines that have been waiting in the cellar to be tasted. This is clearly a glass half full outlook!

Mr Lonely? Can't imagine what that blog is like, but makes me sad to even think of the possibilities...

We hit smack into winter today. I don't like it, and I have some red wine to soothe my frozen body, alongside my version of chowder.

Sunny as hell here, lads all catching a bronzie...or maybe not.

It is tipping it down here in north west Italee and has been for two-and-a-half sodding days. I have a small stream running through my cellar and the woodshed has suddenly sprung a hole in its roof. Happy (belated) Halloween y'all!

The weather is London has been bearable. The antics of Bob Crow and his Tube-based Class War not so.

Did you make those muffins VG? They look fabulous - I don't suppose you'd share the recipe?

Vinogirl said...

Vinomaker: Chili con carne and Zin, a food and wine pairing made in heaven :)

Mr. Lonely: Thank you...and thank you for visiting Vinsanity.

Thomas: Soup and wine is good too. I once had a pumpkin soup with a glass of Viognier, it worked well.

Thud: Had some 80+ days here this week, but rain forecast for next couple of days.

Ron: You must strive to keep your wood dry...chestnut season is nearly upon us.

Affer: Two birds with one stone - the meteorological and political climate!

WH: Alas, the muffins were a mix...but the cream cheese frosting is all mine, yum!

I've sent an e-mail to the one which came up on the 'comments' section of the blog - I hope it gets to you.
