Etchings, spreading the love and molten lava

- This bottle of Fish Eye Merlot, bought on sale at the grocery store. And suddenly noticing the etched fish in the glass of the bottle. Attention to detail like that is pretty cool and unexpected in any product, but especially in a lower priced wine.

- A quick drive to Macon on Friday afternoon for mom's birthday party. It is rare that all three daughters are present for the day. She delighted in spreading the love by sharing her birthday cake with random others.

- A lunch meeting with committee members in which the favorite moment involves a piece of Molten Lava cake. It is fun to see the dark chocolate oozing out of the cake, not to mention delicious to eat.

Sounds like a weekend of wine, birthday cake and chocolate cake then? :D Perfect!

Don't get on the scales for a few days!

TALON said...

The bottle is neat!

Sounds like your Mom had a wonderful birthday!

Geez - I'm going to the wrong sort of meetings! I never get cake! Yeah, I'm whining :)

Joe -

Yes - lots of eating this weekend - I'll have to be good until the end of the week. Then we have our Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday. More food. No scales for me - I go with the fit of the clothes method. :)

Talon -

Maybe you could start a new tradition for meetings up there. :)

I want that cake!

Meredith said...

Yum... sounds like an awesome weekend. I've never seen a molten lava cake... is it mechanized, I wonder?

Lynn said...

RK -

It was yummy.

Meredith -

Those were the high points for sure. I've seen recipes for that - it is done in such a way that the outside is cake and the inside stays hot batter. So good.
