Wine, Pumpkins, and Wild Boar

It's Friday. The day my husband and I cherish our glass of wine or cold beer the most. After school, we decided to head out to Countryman's Estate Winery in North Augusta to try some fruit wine. We purchased elderberry, August Mystique, rhubarb, and wild pear wine. Tonight, we tried the Augusta Mystique. It's really good.

Again, if we hadn't signed up for this challenge, we may never have made this trip. Now, it's a place we hope to visit again.

Despite the rain, we had some time to enjoy the fall sights: pumpkins!

And more pumpkins!
We had the Mulville Boys (no, they aren't bank robbers) over for dinner. On the menu tonight was Wild Boar Stew and corn-on-the-cob. I'd never had wild boar before. The meat was so tender and flavourful, but we didn't find it gamey. Despite the delicious meal, Mike and I both still feel hungry, like there's something missing. I think it's the sugar and carbs.
Have I mentioned the INTENSE headache we both have from caffeine withdrawal? Blinding.
Wild Boar Stew:
3 carrots
1-2 parsnips
3 potatoes (I used blue ones--very cool looking)
2 onions
1 lb of wild boar meat, cubed (available through Wendy's Mobile Market)
3 cups of stock
Put everything is a slow cooker for eight hours. The whole dinner took me ten minutes to prepare.

  1. The Mulville boys really enjoyed the stew. The corn on the cob was especially good both Declan and Russell devoured it. Thanks for the wonderful meal.
