Graze Market and Café

Restaurant review of Graze Market and Café in Winchester KY, Central Kentucky restaurant review of Graze Market and Café,
Review guidelines:
1 Fork = I would rather eat dog food.
2 Forks = I would eat there if I was starving.
3 Forks = Not bad; someplace I would occasionally consider eating.
4 Forks = A good place to eat; I will put it into my rotation of places I dine frequently.
5 Forks = One of my all time favorites!

One caveat to note – I am allergic to fish and seafood, so if you are looking for those recommendations, you will have to consult someone else.

Because I have a daughter-in-law with Celiac and a really good friend who is Vegetarian, I will try to point out whether those options are present when I review a restaurant.

Apple Picking at Marker-Miller Orchards

Fall time family fun picking apples at Marker-Miller Orchards in Winchester VA,
Last year on our way to pumpkin picking, we drove by an apple orchard that was booming.  People were parking their cars on the side of the main road.  We had decided that this year, we would try the place out before heading to pick pumpkins.

I had a visitor the other day

many ways that a loved one who recently died has come to visit,
After dropping Michael off at school on Monday, I noticed this butterfly in our flowerbed in our front yard.  I thought it was a little odd because I've never seen butterflies in our area before.  I went into the house to figure out what I needed to get for the grocery store.  When I came back out to leave, the butterfly was still flying around our front yard.
