Taken to School

Happy Hump Day! Sorry I was MIA yesterday but a migraine kept me out of commission for most of the day. I haven’t had one in awhile but noticed it seems to happen when there is an extreme change in barometric pressure…odd, huh?

Anyway, Phil and I wasted no time diving back into the swing of things with an evening at The Wine School of Philadelphia. Phil actually planned this as part of our Valentine’s Day celebrationbottles but the snow was terrible and we had to reschedule. We chose a tour of Italy, both north & south, and it was deliciously entertaining. The teacher was very passionate about the history of Italy, so we learned a great deal about the different cultures in the various wine regions of the country – SO interesting!


teacherWe went through 4 flights, 8 wines & each one was better than the last! We had such a great time learning about Italian wines & culture, as well as some great tidbits on buying wine, tasting wine & how to maximize the ‘bang for your buck’! Phil & I are eager to try another class soon to increase our wine knowledge; plus, who doesn’t love a relaxed evening tasting some delicious wines and learning something new?!?!?


abburgerWhile the detox is over, Phil & I are still making every effort to eat clean most meals & I plan to include daily eats at the bottom of my posts as a way to hold myself accountable. We had homemade adzuki bean burgers with roasted portobellos, avocado, cilantro & lime for dinner and cacao chia pudding for dessert last night-SO yummy! The recipe still needs work but no complaints here!

What are some new things you’ve tried lately?!?! Wine tastings, fun activities, interesting date nights, new diets, volunteer opportunities…I would love to hear about it!
