Wine Tasting and Pairing: A Provocative Experience

There's more than one way to seduce my heart. Of course, dark chocolate is the obvious one. But, throw in a tasting of wine and a warm saucy plate of Chicken Parmesan prepared by Chef Todd Macdonald and my taste buds delight in a sensual explosion.

The wine pairings, matched with the velvety tomato sauce and the lightly breaded chicken topped with cheesiness was pure foreplay to the heart and stomach. Ultimately, satisfaction was reached and a rosy glow followed. 

Wow! I bet Chef Macdonald didn't know all that happened. 

Or did he? 

I'll have to admit this was my first time at such an event where wine tasting was combined with a prepared dish, so the provocative sexiness of the whole experience was somewhat like losing one’s virginity. Will the next encounter be as passionate? I'd like to think this wouldn't be my last rendezvous.

Our Nest is Empty: I'm NOT Naked or Afraid!

There's a T.V. show on cable that's called “Naked and Afraid and I've never understood the fascination with walking around doing every day duties while naked. And, if they're not afraid of being naked then what are they afraid of? I believe their fear comes from being able to survive the wilderness while completely naked and vulnerable to their surroundings. 

No thanks! I’ll take a parka and thigh-high mukluks please.

Sitting bare-butt on a patch of dirt and twigs while creepy crawlies wander around burrowing into any crevice would definitely make me naked and afraid. So, it’s safe to say I wouldn’t put myself in that vulnerable spot of being naked and afraid in the first place.

How does this relate to my survival in the “wilderness of motherhood” and the onset of an empty nest?

That’s right...the kids are gone, now what will I do?
