I kid, I kid. Before you guys go dialing CPS, it was a running joke between my dad and I.
My love of wine really evolved from watching how much others enjoyed it. While my college classmates were chugging beers and doing keg stands, I was too busy being fascinated by wine to join in. Everything from the smell to the taste. It's tempting and delicious. It draws you in, and before you know it, you've gone though half the bottle.
I also think of wine as my own personal therapist. Had a rough day? Get a glass of wine. Had a fight with the mister? Get a class of wine. Kids driving you up the wall? Tuck kids into bed early, and get a glass of wine. Who needs an over priced counselor when you can stop by your local grocery store and stock up on relatively inexpensive therapy. (Thank you Harris Teeter).
Anyhow, to all of the mothers that have spent the day chasing around your half-clothed, screaming toddlers who have done every single thing you've asked them not to, this one's for you...
Now that you've had a few laughs, I wanted to share my favorite wine this month. Peter Lehmans Futures Shiraz.
This is a wonderful blend, and because it's so bold, it goes great with nearly everything; Beef, Lamb and even Pork Chops. A few weekends ago, I paired it up with a raspberry filled dark chocolate and it was delicious. I'm typically not a fan of dark chocolate, but it is such a great combination with Shiraz that it's the only way I'll eat it.

Until next time,
