Wine...

Ready for another post about wine and cheese?  Me too!  I could probably post about wine and cheese once a week.

I have decided that wine is better than cheese for one reason - I can try wine, love it and go out and get it again next week whether I am in Chicago or Florida in most cases, but with cheese it is hard to find the same artisan cheese again.  I guess that makes it more special, but lets face it, if I try some fantastic cheese I want to bring it to the next party I go to and show it off!

We are unpacking wedding gifts for the first time now that we moved to Chicago.  Previously I was afraid to unpack them because I was worried they would break during the move if they were not in their original packaging.  Along these same lines we just unpacked the wine fridge that Dad bought us for Christmas.

Here is my reflection in our new wine fridge.  A little self portraiture!

To celebrate we opened up the wine that Maddie brought us from the Chianti region of Italy and had a bunch of great cheese.  Corey brought some of the cheese and some of it was from the farmer's market here in Chicago.  The one we bought was a homemade brie with apricots, pralines and honey!  Everything was so yummy.
