Leftover caramels from our non-existent caramel apples at Halloween and leftover sweettart bones made the perfect turkey drumstick dessert for Thanksgiving. I came up with this one on my own, and I'm quite proud.
Simply score the corner of the carmel with a knife to make an opening to stick in the candy bone. Then press the carmel around it and shape it by molding in the corners (pressing it against a plate was a quick solution).

A recent vacation in Wisconsin provided the opportunity to visit Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac, WI. I took the $3.50 tour - and it was well worth it! The actual tour had a few interesting stops, but I would have liked to wander around more of their facilities. The tasting was great though -- I think we ended up tasting nearly 15 different wines.
Aren't the grape vines beautiful? I can't imagine what a winery tour would be like in Napa Valley. Must be breathtaking!
