Wine Lovers Unite at Southern Meadow

Nothing, I mean nothing is better then going to a wine tasting!  It is a wonderful way to socialize with your friends and neighbors and expand your taste buds.  A wine tasting is kind of like a book club, a way for people to come together and try something new and give positive or negative feedback about what the have tried.



Southern Meadow was the host of our very first wine tasting party.  Munchies were included in this party, platters of different kinds of cheeses, meats and olives.  We had our very own wine connoisuer named James, who came out with a variety of wines for everyone to sample.  We started in Italy with an Asti Spumante, and moved on to a selection of white wines from Italy, Germany and South America (a chardonay, a sauvignon blanc, a roscata, and Pinot Grigio).  Then we moved onto red wines from Italy and Chile sampling a chianti, a carbenet and a pinot noir).  I gotta say the wine was flowing! 

The best thing about the wine tasting was everything we learned.  James explained how to open a bottle of wine, the taste and smell, to cork or not to cork the wine bottle, the grapes the list was endless.  At the end of the night we had a trivia question to answer and the winner received what else???  A bottle of wine!


For our first wine tasting I give it 2 thumbs up!  After the holidays we are going to have another one and try a whole bunch of new wines.....heaven!  Salud!!!  The wine that was ordered will be here today!

Southern Meadow Honors Veterans


November 11 is Veteran's Day. A time to honor any man or woman who has served in the armed forces of the United States. This Federal Holiday is always celebrated on November 11 to honor and celebrate those who served our nation. This date marks the end of World War I and is celebrated through speeches, parades, and services. Each American Citizen owes a great debt to our veterans, honor and respect those who have risked their lives to give us our freedom.

Today the men and ladies of Southern Meadow are going to lunch in honor of those that have served.  Everyone is meeting at the clubhouse at 11:30.  The men are attending a lunch in their honor at Texas Roadhouse and the ladies are heading to Olive Garden!

At Southern Meadow we are very thankful to our Veterans that live here in our community and throughout the country. We salute all of the Veterans in Southern Meadow, thank you to all that have served our nation proudly!

Oktoberfest At Southern Meadow!

I think one of the hardest things about my job is keeping up with the blog posts.  Between downloading pictures from my camera and then receiving pictures from other people it keeps me busy.  Sometimes I find I am falling behind on the posts about Southern Meadow, sometimes I let the business of life get the best of me.  So.....to get back on track.  Southern Meadow had it's first Oktoberfest in October!  Traditionally, Oktoberfest is celebrated at the end of September.  We wanted to have a party that included hearty food, strong beer, good music and just a fall feel in general.  We decorated the outside of the clubhouse with mums, pumkins, hay and cornstalks and we decorated the inside of the clubhouse to the famous Bavarian colors ofblue and white! I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did!!
