these past few weeks in canelones & nearby have been busy, but so good. we’ve seen close to 20 bodegas, have gotten to hear their stories & spend time with the winemakers & families at each one. i’ve held back a little on sharing, only because david will share quite a bit soon, but we’ve loved getting to know these people & see a small glimpse of who they are & how they love what they do. the winemakers could not be more hilarious or different…all either 3rd or 4th generation from france, italy, or spain. some loud, all passionate, some really deep & too philosophical for us to follow (in spanish anyway), and all the happiest in the dirt, near their vines…they love what they do.

farmer’s market

every week near us…i love shopping this way & have loved getting to go.

we’ve been living on peaches & butternut squash. and eggs…alot of eggs. for the first couple weeks, we didn’t know where to buy meat, so we bought eggs at the market & made them poached, scrambled, fried… we’d look at each other towards dinner & start laughing…well? want to make eggs again? ..that sounds great. how do you think we ought to cook them tonight?? oh…well, what are you feeling like?  it wasn’t too long after, we found a place for meat & fish, and haven’t made eggs again since..
