Hi, my friends, and welcome to the latest issue of my Drink Wine With Dinner® Ezine!

(You could be getting the “early edition” in your Inbox, btw. Just head to the “Sign Up Now” box and fill in the blanks!)

I hope life is treating you well in your corner of the planet. Spring is in full swing here, with “spring fever” prompting all kinds of little day trips to San Francisco and the Wine Country.

I’ve got lots of tasty new wine, food and fun posts to share with you in this issue of the DWWD® Ezine.

So, why don’t I just pop in some links, and let you click away on whatever strikes your fancy…

I ground pecans to mix into the breading for these pork chops. A few halves at serving time adds to the appeal!

• For “National Pecan Day,” there’s a fun little tale about a pre-dawn abalone hunt (and the delectable dinner that resulted!) plus more recipe ideas for pecans.

• “Shrimp Scampi Day” spotlights that hyper-garlicky mainstay of Italian restaurants and savvy home kitchens. (Just click to try my easy recipe!)

Did you ever wonder, “Why is my wine *crying*? What are those odd “tears” (aka “legs”) all about? Get the scoop from a Princeton scientist (along with *cool* pix and vid).

• And check out the cool “Bouquets to Art” exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park, where floral designers create arrangements to match the artworks. (You can also *Click Here* for our pre-museum Dim Sum lunch)!
