In other words, this is why I *had* to eat 3 lbs of cheese this weekend
In my never-ending quest to not fill my mom’s house up with chotchkes, I made plans to celebrate her birthday, although a month late, at Chadds Ford Winery. I had checked their calendar of events and was beyond thrilled to see that every Sunday in July was Sangria Sunday. Sangria tastings on their porch, picnic lunch & a delightful little musical trio…perfect.
So I packed up my picnic basket with a variety of fancy cheeses & crackers, grapes and mini fruit tarts and off we went. It was probably around 90 degrees outside, steamy & muggy but sitting under an umbrella on the porch, it was perfect. It was $10 for the tasting then $5 each for full glasses of Sangria slushies…so we did both. We stuffed ourselves with Havarti and water crackers and just hung out. It’s rare that I get to just hang with my mom by herself, so it was nice to just jump from one topic to another without any distractions…well besides the tribe of yellowjackets that wanted to eat me.
