Enjoying the great weather this time of year makes exercise easier. While hoofing it around Audubon Park this morning I overheard a conversation among three women that made me want to linger. "So, that's the sauce. What do you think?" "Maybe New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc," came the reply. Trying to slow a bit did not result in any more tidbits but I smiled for a good long while. It was 8:30 in the morning and I'm not sure which part made me happier; people planning a meal at that hour or matching wine.
Food drives this city in a way I have not witnessed anywhere else. Many of us carry proof of this around with us. Planning the next meal over one currently on the table demonstrates the norm but planning it while exercising impressed. Working on wine pairings at this early hour really floored me.
A toast to their meal and a hope the pairing worked!
