Wine Tasting….mmmmm

November 18, 2007

Last night we had 14 friends over for a wine tasting dinner.  It was really fun, and pretty delicious and easy too.  We asked everyone to bring something to eat to share instead of showing up w flowers or chocolates, and we provided cheese, bread, salad, wine & dessert.

I cut up a ton of carrots & radishes which are not terribly French for snacking but were a big hit (and helped ME a lot too).  Made a huge salad and have a ton leftover.  I didnt eat too much at all, and had a good day before the party too, so I felt pretty good about it.  I had 3 glasses of wine, which is a lot for me, but I’d been planning on it and it was very good wine, so I felt good about it.   Biggest slip up was the desserts, in that I’d decided to make chocolate chip cookies (from scratch) and did so, and ate batter & several cookies.  The good news is I sent everyone home w bags of cookies and I only have 6 left in the house, and those will go to work tomorrow w my husband.  I didn’t eat the other desserts.

I also had a bonus in the exercise department.  I ended up going on a really long walk around town yesterday afternoon w my friend (2 hours) and we walked another hour and 15 minutes today, so while I might not come out completely even, at least I spent something.

I need to get crackin’ on my Dr. Hope homework, maybe tonight…
