September 17 – Love me some cheese

A fall preview

I love spring, summer, fall and winter, and get excited for all the changing of the seasons. However, fall might be the V Life favorite. Walking around in the brisk air, I get giggly. The first day of fall is this Saturday, which means MY BIRTHDAY is around the corner, as is Halloween and Thanksgiving. Plus: colorful leaves, fresh and crisp air, apples, caramel apples, memories of soccer, sweaters and snuggling. Ahh! Trying to contain my excitement.

For dinner, as you can see above, I made chicken – pretzel covered chicken breasts with a mustard cheese sauce and pickles. Mmmhmm. You know, you’re welcome to come over anytime! I paired dinner with a Les Gartieux Pauillac 2004.  You read that right.  I opened a 2004 bottle, no special occasion, just a happy V. Carpe diem!
