Wine Dinners at Le Puy - May 22 with Gilbert Henry

Table is set!

Appetizers paired prefectly with Knudsen Block Argyle Bubbly
Le Puy hosted a wonderful wine dinner in May.  Our guest chef, Gilbert Henry of Cuvée Restaurant in Carlton, was our honorary first chef at this first wine dinner event.

He started the evening with mini quiches, hummus & crostini, and paté which we paired with Argyle's Knusden Block sparkling wine.

The second course, a lox style smoked salmon on a bed of arugula with Soléna Pinot Gris was bright and fresh.

A lovely baby green salad with french herb vinaigrette for a palette cleanser and then on to the Moroccan Lamb Stew and cuscous. WillaKenzie Pierre Léon Pinot Noir and Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon dueled for a best pairing with this course.

The final treat was a duet of creme brulée - vanilla and szechwan pepper!  Magnificent with ArborBrook's Sydney Semillion.

A wonderful inaugural wine/chef dinner for Le Puy!

Many miles, many roads I have traveled

Dearest Andy

 - tomorrow is your last day up in Bremerton as an architect for Rice Fergus Miller.  Almost 9 years you were there.  I cannot wait until you drive up to the inn tomorrow night - for good!  No more leaving on Sunday, back on Thursday.  It has been 4 months of this and I must say I am so ready to have you here full time.  Our dream will be more real with you at my side and each day will be special together.  I cannot wait!

June 23, 2011, another memorable day in our journey together through this wonderful life!

This guy was meant for me
And I was meant for him
This guy was dreamt for me
And I was dreamt for him

This guy has danced for me
And I have danced for him
This guy has cried for me
And I have cried for him

Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

This guy has prayed for me
And I have prayed for him
This guy was made for me
And I was made for him

I have no regrets
There's nothing to forget
All the pain was worth it

Not running from the past
I tried to do what's best
I know that I deserve it

And I thank you
