Paso Robles Olive Festival!

We met several of the Olive Oil producers, and learned how to do an Olive Oil tasting. It's noisy and sounds pretty disgusting, but boy oh boy! While I've always loved Olive Oil, until I learned exactly *why* I love it through proper tasting, I realized that I had been missing out on the full pleasure of the oil.

However, Kimberly’s focus on “Pin the Tail on the Bottle”; that is, bring a bottle that’s out of the ordinary, really humbled us. I made lots of grand pronouncements about aroma, palate, and finish, and largely bombed out. Even on the wine that I brought! Oh well.

I’ve been meaning to catch up on posts, but I’ve spent the last two weeks watching the Olympics and gaining weight. Doesn’t seem right, does it? Shouldn’t athletic performances be transferable through TV and result in fitness, despite the popcorn? Apparently not.
