Fabulous girls’s night out with Kelsey tonight!
This afternoon I got some great studying done for Nutrition in the Lifespan. Learned all about infant nutrition. This class is so interesting. I had 2 cups of tea with milk while I studied and didn’t need an additional snack before I headed back out on bike for dinner.
For the bike ride I bundled up with my quilted jacket, scarf and gloves – and even got a little warm on the way there! It’s about 30 minutes to get to SouthPark by bike, and it was much less painful in the proper attire.
Kelsey and I each had five 2-ounce tastes of different wines over the course of our three-hour dinner. Here’s the recap!
I started with the Nelson Chardonnay. Perfectly oaked and California-style –
After the Chard. I had a taste of the Evolution, a white blend. It smelled and tasted just like fresh pineapple juice!
To start for dinner Kelsey and I split a Rainbow Roll sushi. I think I had 3-4 pieces?
I also ordered a big salad with Arugula, Goat Cheese, Red Pepper + Pinenuts. Plus a nice piece of bread!
Plus a hummus plate to make up for lunch. I probably had 3-4 tbsp of hummus and 5-6 pitas? Plus some of the French feta!
With dinner I tried the Zinfandel of the Day. No idea what the label was, but this guy smelled and tasted JUST like a cooking piece of bacon.
Followed by a glass of – get this – the “Clif Bar” !!! Kid you not. I had to try it just for the name! My research tells me this is the same Clif Bar we all know – winery style It was quite good – very fruity with a dry finish.
We turned down German Chocolate Cake for a glass of St. Supery’s Moscato. It’s got the perfect balance of sweet but not syrupy with an apple cider aroma.
I just love having all the tasting options! 2-ounce pours are the perfect size.
I’m off to drink some water and get cozy in bed. Tomorrow is all study for my Foodservice midterm, plus a run and some good eats 8)
And a HAPPY 23RD BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER LARBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
