I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I know I did! I wish I ate a little cleaner, but I’m still quite happy with the way things turned out. Even though I ate dinner at home each night, I splurged a bit Saturday. It was delicious, though I forgot how much more I prefer alfredo to pesto.
On Saturday, Kevin and I had three other couples over for a wine tasting. (Have you noticed yet that we love hosting???) Each couple brought a bottle above and below $15, which is a lot of wine, not that I’m complaining.
Since it was a cabernet sauvignon tasting, I set out brie and white cheddar. I also made a garlic and artichoke white bean dip, which I served with veggies and pita wedges.
Of course, red wine always goes well with dark chocolate. I served up a version of Laura’s chocolate zucchini muffins. I mushed up some raspberries to use in place of applesauce, and then I added a few more berries for good measure. Raspberry and dark chocolate? Sounds like a perfect wine compliment to me!
As you can see from the bags, this was a blind tasting. Kevin and my bottles took 1st and 3rd place. Luckily, the the cheaper bottle won. Gotta’ love it when that happens!
What was the best thing you did this weekend?
