Bigger Than a Bread Basket?

This picture cracks me up. This is Katie from Peaceful Bend Winery. You might have seen her post a comment here or there. Last weekend we were at Tan Tar A for the annual Midwest Wine and Grape Conference, and Monday night was the Grand Banquet where we had a 3 hour, 6 course meal, each course paired with a different wine. We were honored to have the Sainte Genevieve Winery Blackberry served as the aperitif. Anyway, Dad, Lesa and I sat with Katie and her husband Clyde and a couple other people, and we laughed the night away. I always think it is particularly funny when you are supposed to be proper and instead you are inappropriate. We spent way too much of the evening talking about the Bacon Bra. I commented that the bacon was raw and my husband would never go for that, so we spent the rest of the evening trying to devise a way to fry the bacon but still have it in the shape of a bra...a small collander perhaps, a handheld strainer? Clyde suggested Canadian bacon. We laughed and laughed until we cried. Lesa overheard what we were giggling about and then Dad asked what the commotion was, and Lesa told him she'd have to tell him later. This was definently not a conversation for Dad.

In the midst of all our silliness, Katie remembered our game and wanted to play too, so we took the napkin full of bread out of this bread basket, and put it on her head. Later when Dad asked for another roll, we just put the napkin and the rolls back into the basket and hoped there weren't any hairs that made the trip.

At the end of the evening we decided we should all sit together next year, and I hope they weren't just drunk when they said that.
