Hello Everyone,

Wow!  I hope you are here today because I don’t think I have ever seen a more beautiful day in Manchester.  Perfect sun, perfect temperature.  It reminds me of my childhood 4th of Julys when I would jump out of bed, throw on a pair of shorts and run outside.  Before cell phones, the only thing my parents had was a promise to be good and a kid’s appetite that would bring me home to check in.  I would rush out again with a kiss and a final promise to return after the fireworks.

I also remember sitting under a tree with all of the kids and eating grilled hotdogs.  Although I have nothing but respect for the summertime “dog”…….I must say that now I truly relish (relish…get it) Mark’s style.  I am thinking that today is a good day for his amazing weiner schnitzle.   He makes it with German potato salad…..the kind with bacon and stone ground mustard….yes that’s right!   SO GOOD!!!  You must try it!   While your at it you might as well go all in and get a glass of our Barbara di’ Asti to go with it.  Some decisions you never regret.

I hope you have a wonderful July 4th weekend filled with food, fun and fireworks.

See you soon,
