Taking advice from the Eat Local Challenge tip guide, my husband and I went on a field trip. Every Friday we have a standing date. Usually we go to Clay Oven, the best Indian place in Frederick. Since the weather has been so nice, my hubby suggested a new idea: the Friday Wine Down at Elk Run Vineyards. They have a few tables set up, a musician, wine, local cheeses and bread. We bought a bottle of the Maryland Chardonnay which was spectacular- my new favorite perhaps. Then, we cuddled under a blanket, listened to live, local music and watched the sunset over the vineyard. The grape leaves are just starting to flourish and the moon was just a sliver, but we could see the outline of the rest of the heavenly body. It was truly a wonderful evening!
