Yesterday started out like a pretty typical day. Lunch was pretty boring…
Thankfully I remembered my fork :)
I call this “Turkey Saladwich” :) Romaine lettuce, cheddah, turkey, and a dash of olive oil with pepper
Is it the best thing I’ve ever eaten? Nah. But it’s good. It does the job. You know what was really good?
My dessert. :)
I. Love. Fresh. Cherries.
I am currently crazy for them. Luckily Whole Foods and Harris Teeter has been rockin’ the Washington State variety and putting those babies on sale! Funnily enough, I had never tried a fresh cherry until last year! (Shocking I know) I hate cherry flavored candy stuff, so I just assumed I wouldn’t like real cherries.
Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing baby!
The cherries definitely made my day better than typical, and after work it got even better when I met these pretty ladies, Linden and Amber,
at Tupelo’s in downtown Hillsborough for 1/2 price wine night!
Steamy summer nights call for chilled whites!
Luckily Linden and Amber have a favorite:
and it was a super delicious Sauvignon Blanc, Mantel Blanco 2009. Loved it!
Know what goes with wine?
Chocolates!!! Just my luck, Matthew’s Chocolates is literally a stones throw from Tupelo’s. My day was just about to become extraordinary! My luck continued when I realized that the master himself was in the house:
Meet Matthew Shepherd. The owner, creator, and…wizard behind Matthew’s Chocolates!
The main chocolate case was…
tempting. AND full of delicious treats that were absent of gluten!
These chocolates were so good, they deserve a post all their own. (I even gave each piece it’s own photo shoot) So until tomorrow I’ll leave you with this:
Almost too pretty to eat…but I did.
Can you guess the flavor?
