Kath Loves Wine
What a FUN night!! But I definitely went overboard on the wine, which meant I went overboard on the food too. Alcohol is definitely one of my triggers for losing sight of my healthy eating goals. They say when eaters have variety they eat more than when they have just one item on their plate. The same applies to me with wine (and dessert). Each table had 5 different types of wine, and as a wine lover, I wanted to try them all. Not so smart!
From The Beginning…
The Rock Quarry was gorgeous!
So was the setting, although it poured down rain right before we arrived, so things were a little soggy.
Glass #1 – a Russian River Pinot
Enjoying Glass #1
Family with the graduate!
With our good friend Whizzle (Whitney)!!
I had 3 cheese and crackers during cocktail hour. The Gouda was SUPERB.
And about 5 strawberries, which are grown on the farm that owns the quarry
They grilled salmon and steaks right before us. It smelled heavenly!
More vino! I tried to keep my pours small, but I’d say I probably had 6-7 of these size glasses, probably 3-4 real glasses of wine?
Dinner was SO delicious. The salmon had a caper-butter sauce and was grilled perfectly. The asparagus was also grown on the farm, as was the lettuce. I also had cantaloupe, some bread, squash and 2 potatoes.
For dessert they had strawberries over pound cake and cheesecake brownies. I got one of each to share with the husband, but he was full of steak and only took 2-3 bites, so I ate most of both of these Luckily they weren’t huge.
But then………I had some more when Matt went to get some more for the table!
The Matt’s do look alike here!
The Worst Part
When we got home, the husband and I found these in our freezer (actually I found them the other day but remembered them last night!) I ate one PLUS some peanut butter PLUS part of a scone!! Argh. That’s what wine does to me.
Luckily I’m up this morning with only a slight headache and that “wine in my blood” feeling. And I’m feeling much better after a cup of tea. After some breakfast, we’ve got plans for a gym trip and lunch before we head back up to Davidson for more festivities. See you in a bit!
