May the bluebirds of happiness flutter all about you the day long my fine friends.
What to report this fine day? I thought a quick commentary on the smorgasbord that Tiffany and I indulge when we do our weekend afternoon wine tastings might be in order. Previously we relied heavily on bread and olive oil for dipping.
|Humus, vegan cheese spread, blueberries, snap peas, cherry tomato, roasted peanut, grapes, sliced cucumber, baby carrot, and light rye Wasa crackers.|
No. This was quite delicious and paired nicely with the wines we consumed. However, an afternoon of bread seemed to be contradictory to what we were targeting. A health conscious lifestyle. I'm not saying that bread and olive oil is necessarily an evil thing. But, in moderation. Trust me... When you consume a bottle of wine your senses and good diet judgement becomes impaired.
So ~ I am proud to share this blog with you. It's what we enjoyed a couple of weeks ago and has been repeated since.
This smorgasbord is a later afternoon affair. For dinner we share a light fare. We've eaten lunch earlier in the day and have since snacked as we savored our wine. We really aren't overly hungry when the clock strikes 6:00 PM.
Hi-dee hi-dee limit-your-excessive-indulgences-ho my friend.
