My wonderful husband turns thirty something today!

Carla and I made him a special “cheese cake”. The bottom wheel is a French double cream and the top one is a goat cheese from Quebec.

I decorated the cake with almonds, chili peppers and black currants. We piped honey on a piece of cardboard and used that as glue to write Happy Birthday in black currants.

Due to warm weather conditions, our birthday weekend ski trip is postponed .

In lieu, we are spending the weekend under our home-made fort, eating cheese and drinking champagne.

Wine class revival

Carla and I started up wine class again.
The lesson was called “From Pinot to Merlot”
We tasted a Pinot Noir from France, a Syrah from Côte du Rhone, a Merlot from Burgundy and a Chilean Cab Sauvignon.
As we don’t believe in spitting while tasting, the evening was chalk full of giggles, silly stories and dancing.

The Chilean Cab Sauvignon was the least expensive and the night’s favorite.
