Things I Put in my Mouth
What kind of things do I put in my mouth? ~Snicker, snicker.~ Sorry, can't help myself, I'm an erotic romance writer, my brain automatically goes to the inappropriate place first. I'm not talking about inappropriate things this week though. I'm talking about wine...specifically white wine.
Way back at Christmas time, I was visiting my family at my cousin's house and someone asked me if I wanted red or white (or scotch, or whiskey). Feeling in a light mood, I decided to pick white. Even though I'm Italian (half, on my dad's side), I haven't been a big wine drinker in general. It used to give me massive headaches. Now not so much, thank fuck! So, I was handed a glass of white. I took a sip. I said, "mmmm!" but then failed to ask what the wine was. Biggest mistake of my wine drinking life.
Since then, I've been on a quest to find the wine. My cousin thinks she knows what wine it is now, but the journey has been a long, not overly unpleasant, one. A friend of mine suggested I blog about my wine quest and after drinking all weekend, I've decided that yes, I will.
You should all know two things about me: I have no idea what I'm talking about where wine is concerned, my opinions are purely based on my tastebuds' response so they're honest at least. Don't be reading these posts thinking I'm, in anyway, a wine connoisseur. And, I don't drink during the week, at all, until Friday, so yes, that means one glass will knock me on my ass and also, these posts are not coming fast and furious. One bottle, each week, that's it.
This is the wine I tried this weekend. I'm not going to lie, I've had it before and love it already. But after weeks and weeks of trying different kinds of wines, I needed something I knew would go down well. It's light, fruity and YUMMY! It also goes well with cheesecake and Ruffles sour cream and onion chips, which is super important to me.
So there you have it, a blog post about my drinking habits. I guarantee, there will be more to come. I may also talk about other things I put in my mouth on occasion as well. ~wink, wink~
Hehehehe, I'm so juvenile.
