    I would have guessed you like Moscato. Do you also like a Riesling?

    Glad you had a good visit with your family!

    Great post Hannah … I love reading your stories about our times together (and will love reading ones of your overseas times soon too!).

    We were given another clue, a few days later, to that puzzle: My life is measured in hours.

    Pink lady apple cider sounds like a vessel of lovely dreams!

    I’m going to be thinking long and hard about this riddle, because I am positively terrible at riddles. I’m glad that I’m commenting early on, so I don’t have to read the answer in someone else’s comment:)

    Sweet sweet yummy moscato (especially moscato d’asti) is my absolute favorite!

  4. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I must keep an eye out for this delicious moscato of which you speak. Oh, and alas, I am no good with riddles, so I await the answer in your next post!

    Travel is so exciting, but leaving loved ones is hard. Having happy memories of time with them will be a strength and comfort for you. I am very seasonal with my drinks and much prefer red wines in winter. They are so warming. And that top photo of E Teacher Lord is hilarious, esp as you and ADazzlingLady don’t seem to even notice him. I regret to say that the photo amuses me more than the riddle – will mull it over but I think I just need to hear the answer!

  6. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    What fun you all had! And that first pic of the three of you is funny. Your expression differs from the other two quite a bit! 😛

    I want a quarter of the mixed grill, half of the lasagna and all of the sticky date pudding please.

    Riddle – too hard for me …… My first thought was a balloon but that’s too simple…..

  8. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Is it a cloud? That’s the first thing that came to mind…

  9. Gary

    I so want that mixed grill. BADLY 🙂

  10. Rach

    So many delicious eats! And girl, I have no idea about the riddle, haha!

    Looks like you had a fabulous time away with your family! I’m definitely thinking that some weekend trips around the place are in order.

    Alas I have heard that riddle before and so feel it would be cheating to comment with the answer …

  12. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    That top photo is so brilliantly funny that I recommend looking at it whenever you are missing your family. I am sure the sadness will be lifted by laughter, especially when you contrast your brother’s face to the solemn concentration of you and A.DazzlingLady. The image / memory of you happily blogging by your parents (especially the Words with Friends and Sudoko, firm fixtures within my family too) is more poignant – but remember, family travels with you, always. And they are there to come home to.

    I am going to ponder that riddle at length!

    Is that your brother draining the glass in the first photo? He reminds me of Archie! I think if I was presented with that mixed grill I would feel very overwhelmed. Your green plate has a lot more appeal. I’m not good at riddles at all. I’d love to hear everyone elses answers xx

  14. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    i love wineries so so much. they’re so much fun. how cool is it that you get to drink wine with sheep near by? very

  15. Lou

    Oh I LOVE a nice little moscato tipple – If you ever see Two Hands -moscato – Brilliant Disguise (think it’s a 2007?) It’s lovely – plus low alcohol and sparkling… I think it is right up your alley (plus the bottle is super small so you can just have a little!)

    Ummmm riddle? Nope I’m not very smart…. are you going to gift us the answer?

  16. Sig

    Oh what fun! Moscato is what my sister can handle as well while I get into the more earthier, hard stuff (aka red wine).

    That riddle is really a brain teaser….I’m barely being able to concentrate after lunch now….ugh. Will try later when brain is functioning again.

    Love the first picture of your brother! Looks like he is trying to get every last drop of wine from his glass 😀

    Cruise control is the best thing ever invented! Makes highway driving so much more relaxing without the need to keep checking the speedo to make sure you don’t speed.

    What a cool trip my friend, it sounds like so much fun 😀
    Lovely photos of food food and willow tree!

    Hehe I am very much a white wine girl too, though I do like a nice glass of shiraz with a beautiful piece of steak!

    And haha for some reason, my eyes kept getting drawn to the sheep on the right instead of the tree in your second pic… 😐

  20. Jo

    No answers here! Lovely to be tripping with your family. Was your brother mucking around or does he always finish a drink like that?

  21. Richa@HobbyandMore

    something with fire me thinks..
    Those are some fun captures:) take care and wish you a good trip!

  22. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I’ve thought it over and over and I just can’t come up with an answer. I’ve always been terrible at riddles though.

    My husband, who works in a fairly dull job, recently learned all about “incubating.” The idea is that you have to give your brain time away from a problem in order to actually come up with a creative solution. So, you take a walk, listen to some music or play with your dog while your brain mulls over a problem in the background. I am about to go make a pot of soup. Whilst I cook I will “incubate” on this riddle. I’ll come back to you if I get it. If I don’t, at least I’ll have some soup to console myself with.
