last night we had a fun time doing a chocolate tasting…

we had gone to the liquor store to get an appropriate bottle of wine and picked up Inniskillin Cabernet Franc Reserve… two different staff members recommended it…

while I was doing the dishes before our dinner arrived my daughter was preparing the plate of chocolate…

she chose six different chocolates, most of which were around 70% cacao and made a list on a sheet that we would review at the end of our tasting…

then we tasted them one by one with and without the wine

after each piece we both made notes… she wrote on paper and I entered comments into the Notes app on my iPhone

we took our time and toasted each piece of chocolate that we tried…

it was great fun

they were different shapes but about the same size…we took a short break after the third piece to give our mouths a chance to rest…

the wine was very good and we found that it certainly did enhance the taste of the chocolate…

once we were done, we reviewed and compared our notes and picked our favourites… 

as it happened we both chose the same bar…

afterwards we went over ways to make the tasting experience even better

don’t think it will be too long before she has a group of friends over for an official chocolate tasting

nice flower bed down the street…


today she worked and I went out and picked up steak for our supper, read, napped and prepared the ingredients for the meal… 

glads opening…


lovely, restful day…
