Throw Back To Italy

Throw back to our trip to Positano Italy with good friends Kristi and Terry Dallas.  Now fast forward to this past weekend when we unpacked the huge crate with the ceramic volcanic stone table that we purchased on our trip.  

Spring brings new calves, green grasses, and fields of Texas wild flowers. Spring is also the time Martye and I enjoy hosting wonderful dinners for family and friends before the summer heat takes over in North Texas. The dinners will have grandbabies happy in our laps, young ones playing around the table and the adults in multiple conversations at the table. Our Positano 2S table will be ladened with plates of assorted cheeses, bowls of fresh tomatoes, every kind of fruit, pasta, 2S grass-fed Ribeye steaks, and of course several bottles of wine.  We will feast well into the evening. Our family may not be Italian but we have learned the art of enjoying a meal like a big Italian family from the many wonderful Italian families we grew up with in Beaumont.  

"Wine to me is passion....it's family and friends.  It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.  Wine is art.  It's culture.   It's the essence of civilization and the art of living."  -  Robert Mondavi   

"Like wine our grass-fed beef is about family and friends." - Jay Bart Simmons

 The GIANT crate that was delivered to our house! It took my sons, Grant and Andrew, to help me unload it... along with the supervision of Bluebonnet.
