Well, my throat seemed to get better but I still have an overall “Blah” feeling goin’ on…maybe I’m just tired? I got plenty of sleep last night so I’m not sure. A big handful of kids in my class have a cold right now so I’m just hoping I’m not next. I drank a “double” tea this morning (a big tea with two English Breakfast teabags) and I’m going to the store in a little bit so I think I’ll pick up some airborne or vitamin C.
Surprisingly, I felt a lot better after the wine tasting! Wine always makes everything better! 🙂 Today we tried five different wines, four of which were red and one was a Pinot Grigio from Italy. We also tried a Syrah, a Chianti, a Merlot blend and my personal favorite………Beaujolais-Villages! It was the same wine that’s in my fridge right now so that was sort of funny. I took about one sip of each and had a cheese cube and two water crackers to go along with it. It’s really amazing just how much better the wine is when you eat cheese with it! A match made in heaven 🙂
I never feel like a big lunch when I get home from a wine tasting, so today I just kept things very simple with a pb&j wrap, a half cup of cottage cheese and a pear. I got these new wraps at the store and I really like them!
I guess it’s not the most photogenic lunch but it was really tasty: a warm wrap with nutty, fresh ground peanut butter and sweet Bonne Maman raspberry preserves smeared inside (did I make you hungry?!). It was light, quick and tasty of course. But now I’m out of peanut butter so I must go buy more or else I’ll freak out!
So, since we are all on strict budgets with the economy the way it is right now (especially after yesterday!), Caitlin, Meghann and I decided that instead of going out to dinner tomorrow night we would do a pot-luck dinner at Caitlin’s house! We are all going to Seasons 52 on Friday night and two dinners out in one week is a bit much right now. Plus, this will be fun! I offered to bring dessert so I’m searching through my files trying to come up with some fun to bring….
I’m off to the store to buy some cold medicine and peanut butter then coming back to do some yoga…hopefully it will detox my body and get me feeling better soon!
