502 – Spring Wine and Chocolate


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:

Got our taxes done
We braced for the worst again this year, but amazingly we have refunds coming this year instead of owing a lot of money! We celebrated with margaritas.

Margarita Time!

Worked on eating less beef
We had home runs and base hits this year. Sunday we made a Shakshuka with Feta and it was delicious. Definitely a home run! Then we made some Turkey-Hummus Sliders and they were just a base hit.

Celebrated Chad’s sixth match anniversary
Chad is part of Big Brother Big Sisters and they threw a party for all the Bigs and Littles. Chad and Elijah have been matched for six years already.

Chocolate & Wine Pairing at Indulgence Chocolatiers

Attended a Spring Wine and Chocolate pairing
We visited Indulgence Chocolatiers for their spring wine pairing. We tried five different wines and chocolates which were all very floral (think: spring). And we ran into one of Chad’s former colleagues and his wife.

Stayed at home Saturday night
We made good dinner decisions and chose a Chili-Lime Tilapia recipe and then we rented Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
