FOCUS STEVE FOCUS!
Okay, I am going to copy and paste the menu that Steve (Shops for wines the same tedious way he shops for jeans) Ross and I shot back to each other a few times to finally get to where we wanted to go. Just a heads up, this took us 10 hours from start to finish and we did not get around to the manly cheese course... We DID drink most of the wine though.
Finally, here is your weekly link, and another reason I do not like Maple Leaf Foods.
