Today’s Wine Review

I am never going to lose any weight. No matter how hard I try to start the day with the best intentions, something always sabotages me. Alright it’s me, I’m the saboteur, I admit it. I’m just weak. This morning I took a couple of chicken breasts out of the freezer and put them in the refrigerator so Mitch could take them out to thaw when he got home from work. I even texted him to ask that he set them out on the counter. Well guess what? He forgot. In his haste to get home, let the dogs out and go get a haircut, he forgot to set the chicken out.

When I got home and saw the chicken still in fridge hard as bricks, I knew I was doomed again. I think he secretly planned to forget so he could have frozen pizza instead. The pizza is a DiGiorgno rising crust supreme (that means extra fat) with lots of pepperoni, a few olives and a sprinkling of chopped bell peppers. I always pick off the pepperoni and add bell peppers to my slice in order to justify eating it. It’s good in a pinch, even though I prefer the thin crust pizzas, these are Mitch’s favorite frozen pizzas. That’s good I can blame him for the two pounds I will probably gain tonight.

Our normal pairings with the pizza is a beer for Mitch and I usually drink one of the lighter, sweeter wines we have. Tonight I thought I would open one of the bottles of Missouri wines we bought last fall from a vineyard down in Southern Missouri called Meramac Vineyards. It was called New World Wine, a white wine made from the Niagara grape. It was the color of straw, very golden and smelled like an overripe bloom, maybe an orchid, almost sickenly sweet. It even tasted flowery sweet. The wine tasted much better last fall when I was a little drunk. It was one of last wines I tasted in a whole slew of wines. This is a wine that I shouldn’t have purchased and wouldn’t have if I hadn’t overindulged on the wines and on an empty stomach to boot.

It’s a good thing I only bought one bottle this time; usually I can’t be trusted after tasting a bunch of wines. Oh well better luck tomorrow.

    Been there, done that. Not a fan of any sweet wines. Come on out and we can share some nice Pinots and Merlots!

      Don’t forget the cabs. We want to come out and have it on our radar. I’m just waiting until I see the oncologist next week so I can come off of hold and start planning.

    yeah – funny how the wine can be different when you get it home.

      It also helps that I had had many glasses by the time I had tasted that particular one, so my taste buds and brain weren’t talking to each other.
