Sovereign Estate Winery–Waconia, MN

Sovereign Estates Winery

Last week, I was invited to Sovereign Estate Winery to sample their wine and learn more about their new exclusive catering relationship with D’Amico Catering. It was a short drive to Waconia, MN from Minneapolis through beautiful rolling hills and farms. The event took place on a Tuesday which created the perfect excuse to take the afternoon off to enjoy some delicious wine. I invited Laura to come with. 

Nectarine Cobbler

x500-Nectarine Cobbler-3[3]

What to do when you have extra ripe Nectarines laying around? Make some cobbler. We had purchased a large box of white nectarines from Costco earlier in the week and it became obvious we were not going to be able to finish them before they went bad. Give them away or make cobbler. Easy choice!

Last Week In Tastiness


This last week seems to have been inspired by Mexican themes. The tacos above were something we quickly whipped up at home using some cheap, locally made corn tortillas, spinach, black beans, salsa, and cilantro.

Strawberry Pancakes and Fresh Orange Juice

Last time, this post was hard to write because I had nearly 25 pictures of different things I ate. Choosing which ones to share was hard since they were all so good. This time, I only had four pictures.

Burr Oak Winery–New Lisbon, WI


While driving home from our vegan road trip, Laura spotted a sign on the freeway mentioning a vineyard. She asked if we could stop. We had plenty of time, so I said what the heck, lets check it out. While I don’t drink often, I do enjoy a good glass of wine. We pulled off I-94 in search of the winery.
