During Lent, every Sunday is a mini-Easter. There are 40 days in Lent - Sundays are not included. So, this pass Sunday was a great day to celebrate. Our church (Lord of Life - LOL - isn't that a great acronym for a church! - Lutheran Church in The Woodlands, TX, see: http://www.lordoflifeonline.org/index1e.htm) runs a Bible in 90 Days or B90D program wherein you meet once a week to see a video, have some discussions and support one another to read the entire Bible in 90 days - read it like a novel. I travel too much to volunteer to be a facilitator. So, I like to raise these facilitators up and give thank them for their calling by hosting a seven course food and wine pairing. So, this pass Sunday was the day.

Here are the wines:

Yep, every one from Texas. This was, by far, the best start-to-finish meal that I have ever put together.

Here's the menu:
Alamosa Cherokee Rose

Mixed Salad
Becker Moscato
Llano Sauvignon Blanc

Fall Creek Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

Boiled potatoes
Glazed carrots
Becker Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Assorted Cheese, Fruits, Nuts
Flat Creek Estate Super Texan

Sister Creek Muscat Canelli

Coffee and Tea

The recipes you can see on the blog elsewhere. Links are provided.

I was overall pleased with the wines. In the future I would probably try a Blanc du Bois from Haak instead of the Sauvignon Blanc with the scallops.
