So the healthy eating plan isn't going so well this week. I haven't been feeling well (fighting a cold) and the little dude is teething. My eating has been sporadic and not as well balanced as I would like. However, I have not gained any weight back so it's not too bad. I probably won't have lost any when this week is done. Rather than stress about it, I plan to get back on track tomorrow. So tonight, I enjoyed a fabulous dinner made by my awesome husband. I have likely mentioned before that Steve has the gift of being able to throw together a meal from whatever happens to be in the fridge. He attributes this to spending his youth watching cooking shows. Whatever the reason, I am very grateful for his cooking prowess.
So tonight, he made an incredible mushroom risotto. He claims that he really hasn't mastered the art of making risotto yet but I haven't sampled one that has sucked yet. But I do urge him to continue trying. :)
With the risotto, we enjoyed this excellent wine. I found the 2008 Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere in the Vintages section of the LCBO for only $13.95. This wine is produced from organically grown grapes and is fantastic. Deliciously fruity and smooth with a hint of vanilla.
Sometimes, there is just nothing better than a good meal with someone you love.
