Heavy Drinking

So I was thinking about drinking. Not drinking right now, but in general. I am not much of a drinker. Seriously, I bought a bottle of Bacardi like a year ago and it isn't even open. I do enjoy an occasional margarita with some enchiladas. But what has been on my mind today has been wine.

My friend Trisha ordered some fabulous wine for her Thanksgiving feast. One of my favorite blog buddies, Nicole at Red Lotus Mama is always chatting about wine. There are plenty of stories about wine being good for your health. So I was thinking about giving it a go. I cook with wine often. I just buy whatever the cheapest one is when need some to cook with.

I have actually drank some wine and a few have tasted pretty good. But I couldn't tell you what kind they were. I could give you a basic color. I don't know what kind goes with what foods. So I have been doing some research.

At Winco, after much personal debate, I got a bottle of Zinfandel. That's a red one. Red wine is supposed to be good for your heart right?

Trisha sent me this website and I have been checking these out. Maybe I will find something awesome. And if it helps my health...



  1. One piece of wine advice given to my by my favorite wine shop owner back in North Carolina:

    Don't be afraid of a screw cap.

    I wish you luck on your wine journey. Having a glass of wine every once in a while is my favorite indulgence.

  2. David and I picked up a bottle of Merlot this evening. We are willing to try whatever. :)
