Y’all, January can kiss my ass. Oh yeah, I said it. I use to think that February was my least favorite month but I have changed my mind. January is occupied with reevaluating, getting rid of the junk you accumulated in the end of last year, diets, and COLD freaking SNOWY days. It all makes me want to hibernate. The only cure really is a nice, juicy, chewy, warm glass of red wine. Which wine has been keeping me warm? Well last Saturday the WAF girls split a bottle of Shepherds Ridge Pinot Noir for Mudpie’s birthday (Happy belated birthday Mudpie!). That glass of wine was divine. I also have enjoyed petite sirah as of late. That petite sirah is surprising. I akin it to Memphis BBQ. I personally am a Carolina BBQ girl myself but it would be weird to have a wine remind you of pork and vinegar. Nope, petite sirah is like sticky tangy smoky sweet BBQ. It hugs you.
But of course right when you need wine is right when you are trying to stick to resolutions which include less wine. I think that is why it has been a little radio silent around here. We are all trying to steer clear of the calorie – laden wine. Boo. No worries though, it just makes us appreciate the fewer sips we do drink. We have joined Menotomy’s Wine Club and can’t wait for our first installment next week. We will be saving our fewer sips for whichever wine Dan will have in store for us.
I will leave you with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings who have been helping me with my winter blahs. I love this song and can’t stop listening to it:
