There is a saying ‘never look a gift horse in the mouth’. So, with that good piece of advice I will refrain from trashing a recent bottle of wine that was given to Moxie at Christmas time. I did not enjoy it, nor would I recommend it. Since it was not purchased by myself I will not review it as I normally would, however- here is the picture. The good news about the whole episode was the dinner. Moxie and I banged up some amazing stuff: Bison, Beef, Chicken, Chorizo, sweet potatoes and mushrooms with roasted Brussel Sprouts and sautéed spinach with bacon bits. It all came together nicely but the Bison was the highlight.
Instead, I shall regale you with stories of Tuesday. I took Moxie’s new camera (Canon 6D), popped the massive 70-200mm lens with a 2X extender on it and proceeded to snap about a million shots of our two youngest kids ice skating. Yup, Anthojet is a rugged football player and amazing on the ice. JJ is a ballerina from birth and took to skates like a duck to water. The two of them are being trained to skate together, I’m thinking college scholarship. Anyway, they look great together and I was thrilled to be able to watch them with their coach (I’m told she is a famous ice dancer herself). This was all Moxie’s idea by the way. She has pushed them in a direction that they love and are good at.
