So Sunday I finally got to cross off another 101 in 1001. Wow it makes you feel like you are accomplishing things when you start seeing them come off the list! Although at the same time, it doesn’t seem like I’ve accomplished many, but when you think about it, one of them was to make every recipe in the Pioneer Woman Cookbook… yeah that takes a while! Especially since there are 64 recipes in her cookbook, but hey I’ve made 9 or 10. I’m getting there!
Anyway digressing…. One of the things I thought would be fun, is since I’m new to drinking wine, I thought it would be fun to do a wine tasting. Taste lots of different wines without buying a whole bottle and NOT liking it. I’m not a big drinker anyway, but this sounded like fun. We heard about a wine tasting that was held yesterday so we made plans to go.
I think there were 20 different tables set up. 4 were food tables and the rest were wineries. Most were from our area although I know I tasted wines from Oregon… maybe they just set up a table for those, I don’t know.
Tip #1 – Eat before you go to one of these!
Tip #2 – Try things that are out of the ordinary. If you don’t like it, dump the glass, wash it and try another!
Tip #3 – Eat while you are there too!
Tip #4 – Give your keys to your husband!
We didn’t eat lunch because they said that there would be food vendors there also. It wasn’t enough food for me. I think I got a little tipsy but I’m a cheap drunk and a light weight. Neither go together! I had such a headache last night. I’ve heard about these wine headaches but YUCK! We found some good ones. We found some not-so-good ones. We found some ok ones… There was a huge variety!
I also picked up my cell and started texting. (Hi Stephanie!!) I also learned that with an iPhone and a band aid on your thumb, texting doesn’t work so well. But that’s just a side note!
St. James Winery here in Missouri gave us a recipe for
Peace, Love & Wine-o’s!
