“Holidays in May” at The BUzz


10May2016_2b_Camino-de-Santiago_Spanish-Countryside_Painted-2As our Son-In-Law Mac and his daughter Sophia slowly make their way along Camino de Santiago in northern Spain and pass by these wonderful “country” homes, we are at The Buzz eating some delightful food and drinking some special wines at the May Wine Dinner, “Holidays in May”. Cristie and her staff, Tommy and Peggy, did another great job. And thank-you Bailey for explaining Lacross to me. One of the best offerings tonight, although I don’t this it paired well with the selected wine, was the Albondiagas Soup – a Mexican meatball soup. And the Teruiyaki Pina Colada Burger with Zuchini Salad and Baked Beans was superb. Wonderful flavors. Here are soime photos from the evening. As a note, I did not get a good photo of the dessert, so yopu won’t see the Cookies and Strawberries. Oops!

Albondigas Soup (Mexican Meatball Soup)  2012 El Olividado Tempranillo 14.5% alc. Really brought out the spiciness of the soup. I preferred the soup without the wine, although both were very good. [18] $18.00

Morocan Carrot Chicpea Salad 2015 La Playa Viognier 13.5% alc. The wine tended to go "sour" with the salad. I found it better to eat the salad without the wine. Both good as separate items. [16] $13.00
