Oh me, oh my – I sure married a baker!
Half jumbo, half mini muffins
I had a mini….followed by crumbles of about a half a jumbo! They were unbelievably good!
While we pondered how to relax, Matt declared “We’re opening a bottle of wine!!!’
Then the next question was, red or white? Twitter was indecisive, so we went with red.
A bottle from Old North State Winery we got at the Great Grapes Wine festival last fall. It was SO amazingly delicious in a very non-traditional wine way.
What’s that robotic contraption? It’s the Ravi Wine Chiller. An Open Sky discovery. Basically a frozen metal insert that you pour wine through and it chills it to the perfect drinking temperature. For this red, it was probably about 57-59*.
I have to say, this guy has been in my possession for a while and I haven’t had the time [or desire] to try it. But I was more than pleasantly surprised. Matt and I poured a taste directly from the bottle (so not chilling it) and even in our air conditioned house it was WAY too HOT! The chiller worked really, really well.

After 1.5 hours of sipping vino and watching SYTYCD, we thought it might be time for dinner.
Featuring these beautiful organic green beans from Poplar Ridge Farm where Emily is interning! We did a CSA share there a few summers ago and would have done it again this year in a heartbeat if we hadn’t have been moving.
We have plenty more where these came from… expect to see beans a lot!
Sautéed in some EVOO plus blackening seasoning that made the dish
The main event was a Brie + Green Omelet that was postponed from last night.
2 eggs with a splash of water cooked with chopped spinach and oregano, added brie and some herbed goat cheese and topped with microgreens.
I love these little sprouts!
We had great dinner conversation about life beyond the next 2 weeks. Excitement!
A little KERF advice: Back To Your Roots
Matt just cleaned the whole kitchen while I blogged <3
Off to finish the last bit of So You Think You Can Dance. I hate that my new show is so many hours of week! It’s too much!
Can’t wait to SLEEP IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
