Even though it's Cinco de Mayo, we decided to go Greek for lunch....why not!
There is nothing better than kalamata olives, garlic and toasted pine nuts with feta cheese to get you through the afternoon of loads of paperwork.
We currently have wine club shipments leaving the building and it's busy...busy....busy.
By the way, this meal pairs quite nicely with our newly released 2009 Noble Pig Pinot Blanc...it's just outstanding together.
Anyway, give this one a try, it's a mouthwatering way to spend a meal!
