Pretty sure that qualifies you as a multitasking Master of the Brewery Arts..... or MBA!

After Church, ran down to the local Weis (was a Shurfine a few months ago) to find bone in pork roasts for $0.79/lb, unfortunately I bought two at BJs for $1.29/lb yesterday. Doing a eye round roast on the grill for some cheap ($2.99/lb) roast beast, just started some charcoal up so I can sear it first (and add some flavor). Will post images later. Finally did my federal taxes and found that we're getting more of a refund than last year since my wife's tuition expenses are partially deductible. Humm, what can I use that for...didn't even have to think about it, a few Chilean juice buckets or maybe save it for some Fall Cali-grapes.

delabeled cleaned washed scrubbed and cussed about 20 cases of wine bottles. I will never do that again. I will buy clean new bottles next time I need bottles.

I also plan on disowning several friends and relatives who did NOT rinse my empty bottles....that is just rude behavior in my book.

heading back down to the shop and breaking down a ton of cardboard boxes. Then pack up the trash for a dump run tomorrow. Not my idea of a fun filled week end....but, it's done.

A wine filled day. Pruned some more until rain started. A friend has gotten the bug and he and his SO came by and helped prune for some cuttings. His plan is 20 each merlot, Cab Sauv and Syrah! Since it started to rain, I went into the winery and racked 2016 merlot and filtered all the 2016 whites, Pinot blanc, a blend, chard, Viognier, and Sauv blanc. Mopped the floor and turned off the lights.

As I'm trying to lose weight I ended the day bar-b-queuing up some chicken breasts for lunch this week. My wife has picked out a movie to round out the weekend

I hate it when they stack up like that. If they dont rinse, no more wine
