Muscadine Peach White Sangria-1

It has been one heck of a week.

Muscadine Peach White Sangria-7

One where you wake up in the morning with burning ribbons slicing trails of pain behind your left shoulder blade.

Muscadine Peach White Sangria-2

The following morning greets you with the inability to turn your head any further left than 10 o’clock. What you don’t use clock face scales to explain neck mobility. Pfft! You’re missing out on the myriad facial expressions forthcoming from your chiropractor when you toss him that analogy.

Muscadine Peach White Sangria-3

You’ll really get his attention when you tell him that it feels like he’s grinding away the Hunchback of Notre Dame’s hunch as he presses that spinning gizmo deep into the knotted tissue of your tweaked out neck and shoulder.

Muscadine Peach White Sangria-5

Yeah, it’s been a week for sure! This one deserves to end on a high note, one that is fruity and has been soaking up booze for a couple of hours. Did I mention cold, can’t forget nice n’ cold seeing as how it’s sweating dump truck loads of humid here on the coast. We are hangin’ onto summer as long as we can, which is why I went for this particular sangria. My little brother’s buddy passed along a bag of home grown muscadine grapes and fortunately there are still fresh peaches to be had so volia’ Muscadine Peach White Sangria.

Muscadine Peach White Sangria-6

So on the way home from work grab all the ingredients you will need and whip up a fresh batch of sangria this weekend.

If y’all need me, I will be lying flat on my back with an ice pack sipping sangria through a straw and counting clouds until I can no longer feel my toes. Don’t tell Dr. Sean, he might not approve of the self medication. Then again he might who knows.

Love ya,

Carolina Dogs Gone Healthy!

Today’s the day! You know, Labor Day the day where we officially with permission get to be 100% sloths.  Ya know I love it! Now are your grills fired up and ready to cook some succulent meat?  Supposedly, it is also the “last day of summer” and all but, I’m wholeheartedly ignoring that disheartening classification. […]

Being 41 is FUN! Ya know, in case y’all were wondering, are slightly apprehensive or just plain curious about middle age. Honestly my 40′s far surpass my 20′s. Some say, “Age is just a number” or “Embrace your age”, and they are right. Personally though I never think about age at all. A simpler motto, […]

Early mornings watching the boys through drowsy eyes, obligatory coffee in hand, as they somehow lap mile upon mile in the pool have come and gone. Only one more pool party scheduled before the grill sits cold for another year at the clubhouse. All of my summer camp hauls are at an end. In fact, […]

One of the drawbacks of being a traveling surf coach is missing family events. It is inevitable when your work takes you on the road. Unfortunately, for the past 6 years poor Surferboy’s schedule has conflicted with the three biggest moments where as a family we would celebrate him…Father’s Day, our wedding anniversary and his […]

Easy Marinara Sauce

January 7, 2014

Which one of you broke national the heater? Someone did because we’re all shivering in our Uggs. I don’t know about y’all but I’m not built for this cold weather. The boys are spot on when the say, “If it’s this cold there should at least be snow.” On the bright side fluffy sweaters and […]
