Mir is getting married on Friday. I have been invited to participate in her bridal shower. Since I am a huge fan of Mir (both her writing and her as a person) I am posting a picture from my own wedding in her honor.
Good luck to Mir and Otto. You seem so well suited to each other. I hope Otto knows how lucky he is.
Claudia: Look at my butt!
Me: What about it?
Claudia: It’s so cute!
After my wine post yesterday, Kate tagged me for this wine meme.
Are you more white, red, or rosé?
Mostly red now. I used to be a white drinker. I thought I didn’t like red wine for a long time, but it turns out I just don’t like cheap Merlot. Huh. Go figure.
Your first time?
You are probably going to gag, but Jill and I used to make fake wine coolers in 8th grade by mixing my mom’s chardonnay with orange juice.
The best pairing between a wine and dish?
Gabe makes fresh pasta and the last time he made this dish that was pasta and tomatoes and fresh herbs and Parmigiano-Reggiano. I bought a wine from the Piedmont region that was a barbera d’Alba and it was insane!
Neyers Grenache. Well, they don’t make that anymore. Once I had a Syrah from Barossa that was called Glen Eldon (not the same as Glen Ellen) and it was amazing but I haven’t been able to find it again anywhere.
Who chooses the wine at your house or who manages your wine cellar?
Mostly me, but we both buy wine.
How many wines do you have in your wine cellar?
Wine cellar? I have about 8 bottles in my wine rackand that is only because I went to the wine store earlier this week. Wine doesn’t last that long around here.
How do you introduce a young person to wine?
Can’t you go to jail for that kind of thing?
That is all for right now. We’re off to the grocery store. I’m sure I’ll have stories when I get back.
