Wine and Tapas

Last night I headed to the Picnic Loop, out at Memorial Park, for a short ride with some tri friends. It was a great night for it, too. I did some speed work and completed a total of 14 miles. Would liked to have done more, but people wanted food! SHOCK!! So we all headed off to Cova for some tapas and wine. I had a wilted spinach and portabella mushroom salad and ordered an Italian Lover flight (3 taste glasses of wine). The food and wine was great, but a tad expensive. And the service was a little slow. But it was worth it. We had a grand time and laughed a lot!!

Tonight I am going to ride with my MS150 team around the bayou. We will be doing 20 miles. Should be a nice, casual ride. After that it is off to The Village for some “cool-down beverages.” I will try and be a good girl and just have water or iced-tea!! We’ll see if I am successful!!

My fortune cookie quote from lunch today was: “You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment.” I sure hope so!!

I love wine and tapas! When I tell my stories everyone says, "You went to a topless bar"?

I had an experience once when a girlfriend and I went and thought we ordered a $12.00 bottle of wine (times 2). Got our bill. The wine was $12 as GLASS! We spent $48 dollars on 2 bottles of wine! Aaaahhhh!
