Wine and Beers of the World
My dad’s birthday is on Monday, and since we are both big wine and beer fans, I treated him and my mother to a tasting of over 200 wines and a dozen or so beers! First, let’s discuss what I ate this morning though……
Is this a bowl of oatmeal? Nope!
What is in the bowl?
- 1/8c. millet
- 3/4 c. H2O
- 1 packet Starbuck VIA
- 1 TBS oats (okay so it is kinda oatmeal)
- 1 tsp Chia Seeds
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 banana
- more chia seeds
- coconut butter
Enjoyed with coffee from Mexico! A break from my usual Indonesian coffees.
As much as this breakfast held me over, I knew I was going to need to much on something before I headed off to the tasting. I went to make a wrap, and discovered that there were 1.5 left—I took the .5!
Inside I put hummus, avocado, carrots and….almond butter? Yes I did! Why not?
I enjoyed it with more carrots, hummus, and almond butter!
Now for the good stuff!
The tasting was held in Clinton, New Jersey which happens to be a place my dad used to take me for my birthday as a kid. Now I am taking him!

(My apologies for my lack of tasting notes—I have a bunch—I think my dad has them somewhere now…will update if I find them)
Salmon pinwheel and cantelope
Pita, carrot, tomato
Deviled egg, pretzel
Like very bitter dark chocolate.
This Freemark Abbey was one of my favorites of the night!
