Wine with Dinner

When Joe and I were dating, we started getting bored with hitting the same few chain restaurants for dinner on the weekends.  So, we decided to change up our weekend date nights by cooking dinner together on Sundays.  We would watch Food Network at his house in the morning, then decide on what we'd make for dinner.  We'd head to the mall first and buy some sort of new cookware or kitchen gadget.  After that, we'd stop at the whole foods store and pick up any ingredients we needed for dinner.  Then, back to his place to prepare our feast!  It was an all day event, but my favorite part of the day was when we were in the kitchen together.  

While I'm not much of a drinker, I do enjoy a nice glass of wine with a meal or when mingling with friends at a party, a wedding, or business event.  I started with blush wines, then moved on to white wines, then finally reds.  My current favorite is Lambrusco.

I'm not very picky about my wines either.  I usually just settle for the less expensive screw cap bottles as opposed to the more expensive brands, though I've been saving a really lovely bottle of Lambrusco-that my mom gave me-for just the right moment.

Cheap or expensive, my only MUST with wine is that it MUST MUST MUST be cold!  It drives Joe nuts when we're in public and I ask for a glass of ice so I can add a few cubes to my glass of wine!

Hey, I like what I like!

Did you know that wineries are going green?  I'm very new to the whole GREEN concept but found this to be very interesting.
