Girls Night In...Partners in Wine
It was a much needed wine night....with work friends. We went with the "wine tasting theme" and focused on California.
First we (and when I say we, I mean Kristin and I only, because Jenny G only drinks the sweet wines, and she enjoyed her own tasting of pure Turning Leaf Reisling with chocolate) had Sean Miner Sauvignon Blanc with a creamy port cheese. Next we switched to red and did Steven Vincent Crimson (a nice 75% syrah and 25% cab)with my homemade tomato, basil, mozzarella pizza and an apple smoked cheddar cheese. Then Kristin and I swigged a little Kendall Jackson Chardonnay and she whipped up her "precious" little strawberry shortcakes. (Zack was quite pleased with this dessert especially since Kristin brought it to him and served him- priceless)
We had some great laughs. Early in the evening Diana graced us with her presence but she went down for a long milk-tasting pretty early so Mummy could relax with her friends.
