So I have a new friend coming over for the Superbowl and they like white wine. I will drink white wine if I have some asian pears, if it’s really hot outside or I can mix it with juice; overall however, I am a red wine girl (well, actually I am a whiskey girl, but sometimes I like to put on airs and pretend to be high-class….) and know nothing about white wine besides you serve it cold and in a narrower glass. (Thank you bartending college….)
Also for said new friend, I get to have a pretendish dinner party. It’s going to be me, husband, new friend and maybe the girl child. But its going to be lowkey…I’m only making a couple of fancy dishes….the Camembert Poutine (sweet potato fries rather than gnocchi, I ain’t got time for that shite) ala Nadia G, and my peach balsamic baked brie….BUT we are also having the lil’smokies in bbq and chips and dips and all that crazy manjazz. hahah, that looks bad. “manjazz”
Damn it, I digressed.
Back to wine.
Anyway, I texted said new friend and asked about years (vintages?) brands and varieties…not being a white wine wino, I know Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Moscato and Chardonnay, but I know there are more and I know nothing about the differences. New friend finally texted back, but I had already purchased my wine.
You know how I picked?
There are pinups on them and that matches my house’s motif.
Can I be a misogynist and a woman? Damn it. I do like me a hot cheesecake pinup. *giggle* It’s a mini-obsession.
OH! So yeah, therein lies the hypocrisy. I make fun of people for picking teams because of the QB’s looks, but then here I am picking wines because of the scantily dressed women on the bottles. Judging a book by its cover….
But come on! At least it’s local winery! See:
I’m supporting local industry! Does that give me some credit? No?
Oh well. The bottles match by Pinup Porter beer collection 🙂
