Lately I find myself with days off and working nights. You wold think this would leave me time to do all the things I really love doing: catching up on blogs, art, creating, etc. I find all it has me doing however is imagining creating, writing, and actually eating way too much junk! This is awful, especially since I love to cook and had become quite good at cooking quite healthily. This morning at some unholy hour I woke up with my body revolting against all the crud I have been eating. It was about that time on the floor I decided I would get back in the habit of eating at the very least at regular times and not, breakfast at 1 lunch at 6 and dinner at 10:30 when I get off work.
The day started off quite well. I got up rather productive. I ripped the sheets off my bed and threw them in the wash and washed the dishes. I cooked some lunch for noon. It was not the healthiest lunch, but hey gotta finish up the food that is in the pantry, right? I then found myself with the t.v. on Giada at Home. Why have I ignored this show for so long?

On this particular episode there were cherry mojitos, shrimp spring rolls, and beef pops. I have already printed all the recipes and plan on hosting a tiny little dinner one night soon. All this to say I was thinking of my favorite cocktails to have with dinner. I have always wanted to be one of those that enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner. I have, however, never found a wine that I really enjoy as a nice dinner beverage…except one…I became a woman on a mission to find this wine!
I remembered the label. Two elephants. It looked like the backstage of a circus. I remember it from my days in Houston. I worked for the Gingerman and loved it. It could only be bought and served in Texas by a food establishment, so I couldn’t find it anywhere. At the time I could not even find it at my favorite wine shop in Slidell. I was a woman on a mission this morning to find this sweet, dry red wine. I am thrilled to report I was successful:

Now with all this said, anyone who would like to order and send me a bottle of this wine…well, let’s just say I will not turn it down. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to call Marcello’s and see if they can’t get this great wine in for me. I may just be a glass of wine with dinner gal after all.
