19 May Sunshine yellow and a new neighborhood haunt
Hello everyone! I think everyone knows at this point I like wine. I used to get the gallon Franzia in a box in college. Then it was zinefindel which I do like, but have gone to a couple of tastings to know what i like. Who doesn’t enjoy a crisp, cold glass of pinot grigio in the spring/summer months? My husband and I went to this new Tapas ad Wine Bar called Bacchus Tapas and Wine, here in our neighborhood. It was nice to sit outside, very sunny and hot, as we were the only ones outside, but then again it was 1:30 in the afternoon, 90, but honestly , there was a breeze. I do enjoy being outside, but there is one thing about Charlotte, that usually happens every year, we have a short spring, or it goes directly from winter to summer. This is a hot spell. It will go back to the mid 70s, then maybe again up from there. It can be tough to “dress elegantly” when it is in the mid to high 90s which when we have had hot spells in the summer, get that hot. Basically, you certainly can if you know you are going to be in air conditioning, but I like to sit outside, view the scenery, and wear my sunscreen. So, we had a good bottle of white Pinot Grigio, I had a delicious summer green salad with focacia croutons, tomatoes, onions, pine nuts, and I added grilled chicken. Just enough when it was that hot out. Hubby had a side salad, which was similar to mine, but added blue cheese chunks, and then he had a sandwich, a toasted turkey, smoked mozzerella, tomato, on foccicia bread. We then walked around, as it will be a big complex with an ampitheatre for music, shops, restaurants, wine bar, and music. Overall, a nice day.
Have a great day! Jess
