My Cheap Opinion

Dear Followers

Recently Ive been notified of a possible opportunity to expand the content of this blog. Through a program I’m part of called Moms Meet, I may be receiving a new diet supplement to review. This would be the first post dedicated to health and wellness. I hope all of my readers are as excited as I am for this new content I’ve decided to add to my various other reviews. I also plan to update more frequently and to post reviews more often. Thank you for all of your support.

Now, I know White Zinfadel isn’t the most impressive nor prestigious wine, however this one from Sutter Home was quite marvelous. I happened to enjoy a few glasses during a thunderstorm and it did the trick. I’m certainly far from a wine snob but even the most cultured palate would have to agree that this wine is not only refreshing, but also sweet and casual. Also sweet was the price, only $5.00.Price: 10/10Taste: 9/10

   This is not going to be a restaurant review! I’ll be reviewing a dinner personally prepared for me by my best friend while I was in Ann Arbor.    Marinated beefsteak, lemon garlic green beans cooked to perfection, baked russet potatoes, and a salad with Balsamic vinaigrette topped with all natural corn chips. And let’s not forget the wine! An excellent Fish Eye moscato that only ran us around $7. (The orange ice cubes in the wine on the right are actually made of orange juice which made an even better and unexpected wine experience.)    The food was amazing, down to the last bite. It of course gets a 10/10 for taste and also a 10/10 for price as I did not pay anything for it! The Fish Eye moscato gets a 9/10 on taste and a 10/10 on price. You cannot beat $7 wine, people!    This is not going to be a restaurant review!

    Over the weekend I made my friend and I a surprise birthday dinner reservation at Palio’s in downtown Ann Arbor, MI. After extensively reviewing the menu nothing really quite stood out to us so we decided to just get an appetizer each.    My friend decided to order the Insalata Caprese (First Picture) composed of fresh mozzarella, beefsteak tomatoes, balsamic syrup, basil oil and sea salt. The tomatoes were a bit firm but that turned out to work in her favor when attempting to scoop cheese and basil onto the fork.     I chose their Bruschetta Palio (Second Picture - Of which had been half eaten because I was starving!) which consisted of tomatoes, roasted garlic and mozzarella cheese and was served on warm toasted bread. It was quite fresh and had just the right amount of kick.
   Just before leaving and grabbing the check, I snuck away to mention to our waiter that it was my friends birthday and he returned with a rather large Tiramisu, lit candle and all! Unfortunately we devoured it too quickly to take a picture. Price including tip was only around $20.
