Another Meal Success
We received the coolest wedding present yesterday! Some family friend's of B sent us a case of various wines from California with personalized labels on them. What a great gift! AND our wine cabinet is full for the first time which is awesome. It's never occurred to me to ask for wine as a present before, but I think we should from now on. It's so nice to have around to make any meal more special and it's a treat that we usually wouldn't spend the money on.
Last night we opened the Chenin Blanc, which is a wine we never buy but it was excellent. It's similar to a Pinot Grigio - light, crisp, flavors of apple and pear. It was perfect for our Brinner
(Scrubs reference to having breakfast for dinner). I would say we have Brinner at least once a week and by now B is a whiz at making amazing breakfast burritos.
Additionally, I had another meal success of my own last night that I was very proud of. I wanted a side salad, but when you're eating eggs for a meal a regular salad would feel too heavy, so I invented a dressing and it was great!! It was so light and delicious and actually matched perfectly with the eggs and the wine. Look how pretty!
Recipe - Juice from 1/2 a lemon, a few tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, and some dried basil. Whisk together and serve.
Today's Humorous Visual - Yesterday on the way to work B saw a horse on a treadmill. Really.
