Happy Valentine's Day!
For this Slow Down Sunday I wanted to share what Mk and I did this weekend. Typically for this fun holiday we don't go out. We decided to get some wines we've never tried and go to our absolute favorite deli and get some delicious meats and cheeses. Off we went to the "Wine Store"!
Then we headed to Salamone's! This adorable Italian food market was established in 1950 and taken over by Tony the origional owners son in 1971. Allow me to just say that this man is basically my hero. Not only is he sweet and knowledagable but he also had a mug of wine in his hand at 1:00 pm. He truly is one of the reasons we always go back there. He remembers you and always makes for a great experience. Businesses like this are why it's so important to shop local.
Then we went home and made made pizzas and did a little wine pairing. In case you were wondering what goes good with the wine we chose, this was last nights pairing:
Malbec - Gouda
Shiraz - Sharp Chedder
Rioja - Gorgonzola (We got olives stuffed with this delicious cheese), also Gouda.
So slow down, drink some wine, snuggle up with your Valentine!
..Or your your fur babies, either way.
