What To Do After A Long, Long, Day

Last week was one of those weeks you would rather spend lying in bed with the covers over your head. At least that’s what I wanted to do. My nineteen-year-old son thought it would be a great idea to take an old car on the road for a 6-hour drive. In addition, he forgot to put oil in it before he left. So of course we got a call on Friday night asking us if we could pick him up in West Lafayette, Indiana, home of the Purdue Boilermakers.

So on Saturday morning, we all hopped in the car for a thrilling ride on the interstates of Illinois and Indiana where we happened to find a Hooters Restaurant in Merrillville, Indiana. That proved to be the best thing about the trip as I was able to try a great little wine from Twin Valley by E & J Gallo Vineyards. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied yet soft wine that goes well with a variety of foods including My Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf by Wolfgang Puck.
