Friday, February 13th - woooooo Whistler

For breakfast I had Nature's Path Optimum Slim and D had Yogurt. I added some of the Heritage Grain Flakes because they've gone slightly stale since we started buying the boxes that were on sale recently. The Nature's Path come in Organic Bulk bags as well in most of the niche grocers around here and they're far better deal, normally, than the boxed sizes. But they're like 3 times the size and can go off if you don't eat them fast enough.

For lunch I had the Butternut Squash and Chestnut risotto from This week. I also had a small portion of the Yak-shik.

For dinner, we made a different Coppola pasta, Marmarella. It basically lookes like an extrusion of an asterix about 1.5 inches long. I had a jar of Classico Spicy Red Pepper Tomato sauce. It was pretty late by the time we arrived at Whistler so it had to be quick. We had a bottle of Chianti and a bottle of Malbec. The Poggio Al Tesoro Chianti was nice until I tried the Malbec. The Malbec was great. It had a fantastic nose and big fat lady body. So when I went back to to the chianti, it was just okay. Naiara Malbec. mmmmm We also tried some wine that M from D's work brought, a lovely Pinot Noir. It is too bad I don't remember the name. It was amazing. He also had a Cortegiara Amarone. It was very robust. Nose was full of Prunes and Sundried Tomatoes. It is not something that would play well with any subtle or light foods. We had it sitting around talking.
