Herb Brushed Tuna & Chardonnay

We talked about having Chinese food tonight, but I changed my mind and went to get takeout @ Tender Greens that would go well with Chardonnay I opened yesterday.

Herb Brushed Tuna Plate with Kale, Quinoa & Garlic Bread $13

Oh yeah, it’s a perfect dinner in a relaxing mood on Friday night.

Skinny Canned Wines

I found different types canned wines at BevMo. Skinny ones. This would be a perfect size for me. Can’t wait to try them.

This pinot noir is supposed be chilled, but I drank as is. It’s smooth and fruity with cherry and raspberry flavor.

First Time to Try Canned Wine

It’s not beer or soda, but wines (pinot gris, rose, pinot noir $5.99 each @ Bevmo).

Actually too big to finish at a time (375ml = a half bottle size). Split Pinot Noir with him tonight but still a lot.

Note: Raspberry, Cherry, Chocolate
Bitterness stands out to me first, but tastes better with food.

Salade Niçoise & Sauvignon Blanc

Dinner: Tuna Niçoise Salad + Sauvignon Blanc
I picked up the salad ($12) at Tender Greens and a bottle of wine (actually two because the second one costs $0.05) at BevMo.

Look at this chunky Tuna perfectly seared.

I randomly chose this wine in the refrigerated section. “Buy one get one 5 cents” was very attractive. It tastes ok tho.
