Summer is finally here, the kids are out of school, and even the sports and all the other extra-curricular activities for the kids have slowed down. The frenetic pace of life is taking a break for the next couple of months.
With that, let’s raise a glass to some free time. Seriously, free time is such a commodity in my circle of friends and family. It’s rare that we can actually all get together to relax and leisurely enjoy sips and bites without the kids tugging on us, and calendar reminders going off.
That said, you can see why I’m enthusiastically participating in the Chateau Ste. Michelle #atoastto and #toastcontest campaign. It’s a fun and interactive way for us to take a breath and reward ourselves with a fun, affirming way to celebrate the little things.
For me I’m going to raise my Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay and give #atoasttoblowdryingmyhair. That’s right, my poor hair has suffered a too-long run of bad hair days. Up until that last school bell rang at 2:35 this last June 22, blow-drying my hair was a luxury equated with time.
Now you see what I mean about having fun with Chateau Ste. Michelle? Let’s do this together, because I know you all have your little victories of winning moments, big and small. It’s a way for us to share the good things in life together.
And here’s where it gets even better, go to atoastto.com to create one of your toasts and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a trip to the Chateau Ste. Michelle summer concert series.
Now for the food, I’ll be serving this simple appetizer of melon wrapped prosciutto along with a few other finger foods at my next barbecue. The appetizer is simple, crisp—perfect for summer, but most importantly, it can be eaten while holding my glass of Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay in the other hand—and of course with my blow-dried and perfectly styled hair!

Melon and prosciutto are such a wonderful combination, the perfect amount of salty and sweet. These would make the perfect appetizer to serve with wine at a summer happy hour!

Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen says
Gorgeous photos! And these look so delish – I want to reach into my screen and eat them right now. Yum!
Melon and Prosciutto is a great flavor combo. But I’m still trying to figure out how to wrap melon around a slice of Prosciutto. Maybe with just enough Chateau Ste. Michelle I’ll be able to figure it out. Like the plaque on my wall says, “I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.” Thanks for sharing.

These photos are stunning and I can imagine eating this on the Italian countryside!

I was tempted to write “Nice melons!” But then I stopped myself. Oh, I guess I didn’t.
