With C.Jones I am a lover of all things food, wine, and travel. I am particularly interested in highlighting wines made by BLACK winemakers or in BLACK owned wineries!

🥰 V D A Y 2 0 2 2🥰

The day of love was yesterday, but I had a great TWO days of fun, laughs, and love.

I know not everyone goes all out for this holiday, but we changed it by doing somethings you can do anytime!

Here's what we got into:

🖤 The National Museum of African American History and Culture @nmaahc

This was my 3rd time going and I still keep learning something new. Plus, it is wayyy less crowded. Masks are required and they did check our vaccination cards to get into the café (although this mandate is apparently going away)

🥘 Dinner @irongatedc. I had the tasting menu with wine pairings and it was so much food (I mean the 1st course was 6 dishes!). All the wine selected was the perfect pairing. It was great

⭐ A little magic was done on my brows! Sheesh. I get threaded and it still brings a tear to my eye!

⚜Speaking of magic!! We also went to a digital art display @artechouse

I was absolutely mesmerized! No words can depict what's going on in there. They also have a bar that opens at 3pm and there are drinks inspired by the piece. Also, each drink comes with a QR Code that is yet another art piece inspired by the drink! It's never ending!

🍽 More food @littlepearldc

There was a special tasting menu (we also got wine pairings) for Vday and it was awesome. They even gave us a to go bag with milk and cookies. Perfect.

🍿To end it all off, a nightcap at Off The Record "where you can be seen but not heard" located inside the @hayadamshotel

Everything is red basically lol and it was a nice quiet spot to grab a drink and chat. My drink came with caramel popcorn soo I was happy.

Of course you have to do all this riding around town in a black Suburban to make you feel somewhat important lol. I was wearing a dang dress, it was worth it.

🛑 I M P O R T A N T🛑

I have to get this off my chest.

If you have been a fan of this page for the past 6 months in particular, you know that I have been in and out for various reasons. Reasons that I expressed, and reasons I haven't.

I have been thinking about how I have not been posting. I haven't really done anything new, and I have not really seen any growth on my page (no loss though).

I put this I surmountable amount of pressure on myself to POST and ultimately I come up with nothing and don't post.

Today, I had a post...and this is it. It is not your fault that I get stressed about not having content for the moment but it makes me feel better to say that sometimes I will be here and sometimes I won't.

That's all.

Happy SIPN'

2021 TOOK BETTY WHITE

Dear 2021,

I am so glad that you die tonight.

You took Betty White and that is unacceptable.

🍷NEW BLOG ALERT🍷

⏰SAVE THE DATE⏰

And I mean all of them!

Last year I was extremely upset to learn about advent wine calendars when it was too late (they sell out y'all). This year I was playing ZERO games.

I decided on the 24 day advent from Wall Street Journal (@wsj) because 1. It's 24 days instead of 12 and 2. They have a good wine club and have had positive experiences with their wine selections and recommendations. I could have gone with a 12 day (which is more likely to have full sized bottles), but this one was still more appealing.

Then, of course I figured it would be awesome to share this with you all. So, yes; I plan on going LIVE for 24 days IN A ROW! It's absolutely insane, but I am going to try my best to show up each day lol.

Similar to my show, SIPN', I will not taste the wine prior to the show, and I will literally be going through my wine tasting process....BUT for a little extra kick, I will not even know what wine I am drinking prior to the show! So, this is COMPLETELY unscripted.

It is going to be kept short--around 20 minutes, but of course I will be answering any questions and just engaging with you as we go along.

If you have a wine advent, or even just some wine, or even if you just want to join--I look forward to you being there.

The 1st installment is tonight, Dec. 1st at 7PM!

🧐WHERE HAS WITH C.JONES BEEN?🧐

I have not been gone for no reason, and right now I dont want to type out what is said in the video. I apologize for the lack of captions.

If you have questions, ask! But remember I may not answer all of there are a lot 😊

🥚HOW DO I LOKE MY EGGS?🥚

Of course with everything going on I am reminded of that time a few years ago when my co-workers got me this cake.

It was the day before my surgery.

The surgery to have my fallopian tubes removed.

This was a huge deal to me. I was FINALLY able to (after 10 years of fighting the medical system) do something with my body that I wanted.

I always knew I didn't want children....and the times I "said" I did I was conforming to what society or a partner expected of me.

On top of that I had severe endometriosis. The removal of my tubes and insertion of an IUD tremendously helped me.

Point is...I shouldn't have had to wait 10 years and hear all the "your not old enough" "let's revisit this once you have a baby" arguments and I should have been able to decide what was done to my body from day 1.

Women should have the right to make decision regarding their body from DAY 1.

SO, I like my eggs in a cake....not fertilized in my uterus.

😘ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE😘

So, I did a little poll on my stories, and it looks like a few of you wanted a food post. Here it is. Y'all know I went to @rasikadc a little while back, but I never posted what I ATE!! Easy fix.

I got the Tasting Menu with Wine Pairings. (It's in my bio for a reason). So sorry but I don't remember what the 2 bites were. They were delicious though. In addition to the wine, I was SIPN' on a cocktail. the Sania.

FIRST COURSE:
+ Palat Chaat (crispy spinach, sweet yogurt, tamarind, date chutney)
Paired With:
Clos Amador Cava Brut Delicat Reserva (Spain)

SECOND COURSE:
+Scallop Karwari (scallop, coconut, kashmiri chilies)
Paired With:
2018 Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley)

THIRD COURSE:
+Black Cod (add-on for $10)(cod, honey, cheddar, star anise, dill potatoes)
+Halibut Kerala (Kashmiri chili, curry leaves, Malabar tamarind)
+ Lamb Do Pyaza (onions, yogurt, chef's blend of spices)
+ Chicken Tikka Masala (onion, tomatoes, fenugreek powder)
+ Dal Dhungaree (smoked lentils, garlic, tomatoes)
+ Bhindi Chili Garlic (okra, onion, ginger, red chili flakes)
Paired With:
2019 Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

FOURTH COURSE:
+ Date and Toffee Pudding
+Gulab Jamun
+ Rice Kheer
+Cardamom Ice Cream
Paired With:
2015 Quinta da Alorna Abafado (5 year)(Portugal)

There you have it. That is everything I ate LMBO. Yes, I was stuffed, yes I ate it all. Yes, it was great. My favorite dishes would have to be the smoked lentils and the black cod. just YES.

🛑NEW BLOG ALERT🛑

Ok, so before I get into that. This is sort of a good news/bad news post. I'm going to decide for you and give the bad news first.

Like I said when I posted my wine review, I am NEW to this....so, in the process of publishing my blog post, I deleted my Wine Review. No worries, I will rewrite it...probably just not tonight. However, for right now, it's gone bye bye.

That being said, I DO have a new BLOG POST! My first ever blog post for With C.Jones.

I talked about things to keep in mind when you're a WANNABE wine expert like me. It seems so much more appropriate now that the whole deleting a review that was doing pretty well thing happened.

Go check it out. LINK IN BIO!

Cheers folx.
