Knitstant Gratification

The crafting adventures of a knitter, music lover, and hockey fan.

Happy Saturday!

Posted by Andi on October 6, 2012

Last Saturday we visited Tim’s family. We spent most of the afternoon in Michigan visiting two wineries, and it was such a beautiful day for it. The first one we went to was Lemon Creek Winery. It has a large tasting room, so even though there were a lot of people, it didn’t feel very crowded. Tim and I ended up buying two bottles of wine from there, a red and a white.

Next we went across the way to Domaine Berrien Cellars.

That tasting room is tiny, and it was crowded. However, they have a lovely back deck with tables and umbrellas, where you can sit and enjoy bottles of wine.

So that’s what we did. Tim picked out a bottle of wine, I picked out some cheese (the winery supplies the knife and glasses), and we already had some sausage. We found a table and enjoyed our food and drink.

And of course, I did some knitting.

We spent the rest of the day in Tim’s parents’ back yard. We ate dinner and took some target practice with a pellet gun. As it got cooler Tim’s dad started a fire in the pit.

Soon we were all sitting around the fire. Of course, I did some knitting.

And Tim made popcorn over the fire.

We also toasted some marshmallows. I accidentally dropped part of mine in the popcorn bowl. Oops! Just for kicks I rolled the soft warm marshmallow around in the popcorn and made a little ball. It was surprisingly good! It tasted like a Rice Krispy treat, only with popcorn instead of cereal. So there’s a tip for you the next time you are toasting marshmallows and are tired of the same old s’mores — put it in popcorn!!
