Last weekend, we finally did our wine & chocolate pairing. When we were in Vermont in January, we visited Lake Champlain Chocolates & bought 5 dark chocolate squares with the idea that we would do our own wine & chocolate pairing one evening. It only took us 6.5 months to get to it! It was fun sampling the different ones. We had 2 that were 70% cocoa, 1 75%, 1 80% and 1 spicy milk chocolate. For the wine, we had tastes of Malbec, homemade zinfandel, & a blackberry wine. The blackberry went best with the 75% & 80% chocolates because of it's sweeter flavor. It was a fun way to spend an evening!
Has anyone seen Pitch Perfect? Cause you totally should! It was entertaining & impressive at the same time. I think we're going to have to watch Glee now...
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I can't believe it's the 2nd weekend of August already...summer, don't leave us. I haven't had my fill of fresh-from-the-garden produce yet!
Here's what we've been eating in the last week:
- Vegetable pizza
- Green salad
