Tasty Treats in Tucson

We had a great trip out to Arizona to visit Scott's Dad & Step-mom. We spent 5 relaxing days hanging out in the sun, visiting the sites, and spending time with Scott's family. I also got to take a little road trip down to Tucson. I went to visit my old college roomie, Andrea, and her new beau, Moose (aka Eric). I had a great, but way too short visit. We went and had some great wine, Masi Campofiorin at dinner. Because the wine was so good, we headed to Bev Mo (the "Wal-Mart of Liquor" as Andrea puts it) and bought a few bottles. We decided that we would also make some Peach Sangria. We found it ironic that both of us had seen a Peach Sangria at Applebee's and both of us had taken the time to write down the ingredients from the menu. So we bought the required ingredients and concocted a very yummy sangria. The next morning, Andrea & Moose fixed a quick and very healthy breakfast that I enjoyed before hitting the road and heading back to Sun City. Here are the two recipes we enjoyed:
