We all seem to eat more of the things that we would only ever eat once a year, like chocolate for breakfast perhaps, or pâté, chutney, and Stilton.
This year I was kindly sent a bottle of Aldi Fletcher's Fine Ruby Port and a truckle of their Wensleydale with cranberries to try. These have been expertly paired by Master of Wines, Sarah Jane Evans. With all the hubbub of Christmas and the New Year, as well as me working over the festive period, we decided to leave our treat until everything had settled down and we could sit peacefully together and really enjoy it.
So, with yesterday being my husband's birthday, the wax was peeled back, the crackers brought out, the cork was popped and the glasses were filled. We put our feet up, put a DVD on & sat together to finally relax, bring in 2014 and to toast the year ahead.
To 2014 and the year ahead. May it be a healthy & happy one for you all. Cheers!
The bottle of Port and the truckle of cheese were sent to me free of charge from Aldi's PR company. I was not under obligation to either publish a post or to provide a favourable review of them.
