Yes, that is a half bottle of 1964 port that I bought for The Husband's birthday. 1964! Barrel aged for 40 years, bottle aged for almost 10! Further, the year 1964 has a certain significance to any Alaskan. Commence drooling.
Additionally, that is a half round of O'banon goat cheese wrapped in grape leaves that have been soaked in bourbon. I finally made it to Fromagio's, the relatively new cheese store in south Anchorage. It's super awesome! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, happy to help you out and answer questions. I didn't know what I wanted and the selection was overwhelming, but all I had to do was mention a few other cheeses I enjoy and they whipped out a selection of samples for me. I came home with some nice cheddar too, but the goat cheese was the clear winner.
Anyway, the point of this post (that's a lie, I just wanted to brag about the port and cheese) is a bit of an update. You may have noticed that the blog got a little face lift. The most important part of this face lift is just below the title. Yes, I have tabs now! My kick in the butt for finally getting tabs was joining the HH6 cooking club. Basically, once a month I will be doing a cooking challenge along with the other fine ladies of the HH6. If you want to know more, click the tab! We get our first challenge Monday.
ps. The moose is just there for cuteness. My mom made it!
