Rainy days plagued many of our performances in the past month……if it was…it rained. All except the new venue, Fergedaboudit Winery in Hanover, IL. A beautiful evening, the crowd really enjoyed the wine, the food and the music. Even the lawn seats (who named themselve's "ghetto seating") were up and dancing! Couple Private events rounded out our month…now on to August. Please check our schedule, but a few reminders, August 11th Princeton Festival, August 20th Catigny in Wheaton, IL., August 24th GPS Farmers Market in Machesney Park, IL., and August 26th Spring Creek Concert Series in Rockford, Il.. Always check our schedule as it does change. Hope to see many of you for a Hot August Night.
Please enjoy a great summer appetizer.
Blueberry /Peach Brochetta
1 8 oz. Container Whipped Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Blueberry Preserve
3-4 Medium Peaches, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Fresh Blueberries
1/8 cup Honey (for drizzling)
1/8 Salted Almonds (crushed)
Fresh Mint for garnish
Slice & lightly toast bread after slicing, let cool
Top each slice in this order:
Whipped Cream Cheese
Drizzle with Honey
Top with a leaf of Fresh Mint
Always match the level of sugar in the wine to that in the food.
A nice Moscato, or a dry Riesling works very well.
Come join us when you can.
