Day 19 – January Daily Blog Posting Month
Had a wonderful evening with my girlfriends last night. My husband cooked us up some fabulous pasta – a sweet vegetarian marinara and a spicy italian sausage marinara. So, so, so good!!!!
And of course, there was wine.
And then this…
Wake me when it’s Monday, k?
Day 11 – January Daily Blog Posting Month
I needed some inspiration today, so off to Pinterest I went and found me this little gem.
For those not in the know:
- EtOH is ethanol, which is alcohol
- QD is Latin (quaque die), or every day
- PRN is Latin (pro re nata), or as needed
I may have said this before, but I do enjoy wine. I kind of grew into my taste for wine. I used to only drink the sweeter reds and you couldn’t get me to touch a glass of white. Ew! But like a fine wine, one does get better with age and my tastes have certainly matured. I prefer my reds on the drier side these days. I am no wine aficionado, but I do know what I like and what I don’t like.
Over the years, my husband has also discovered his love for wine and has done extensive reading and even started his own wine blog which sadly has fallen by the wayside. I keep telling him to get back to it, but his modular synthesizer is occupying his time these days. Anyway, we have amassed a nice collection of wine which is being stored in a closet under the basement stairs. I would love to have a proper wine cellar but for now the “wine closet” will have to do. There is my 40th birthday wine a 2005 Mission Hill Oculus from British Columbia. My husband’s 40th birthday wine was a 2004 Alion. His 40th was last year. Sadly, my pregnancy got in the way and we didn’t open it. Perhaps we will for his 41st?
In any event, I like drinking wine and I like buying it! Our “everyday” wine supply was suddenly depleted (I have no idea how that happened!), so the other day we went to the liquor store and stocked up.
So, I’m curious. What do my readers drink? Tell me about your favorites. I am always on the look out for new wines to try.
