Friday Food Day (Uber delayed)
Well I’m super annoyed for two reasons right now, 1) this blog is like 2 days late, and 2) this blog was amazing as of 3 minutes ago before I deleted it, instead of saving it. Major blog fail on my part, another reason I’m mad (it’s my fault and I can’t even blame technology for it).
This blog is way past due, but not without good reason. I went out of town this weekend and visited old college buddies and the bars Friday night. Sounds irresponsible I know, but I actually had prepared in advance my Friday Food Day on Thursday night to avoid this delay. I even had gone to the store and bought loads of ingredients to what I thought would be my first great martini cocktail.
I was wrong, way, way, way wrong.
I was stoked Thursday, because I had found what seemed to be a perfect martini recipe for the coming summer pool parties. It was called a “Pinkade Martini” and it was a mixture of cherry, lemonade, vanilla, lime and sugar. It looked beautiful and super refreshing. I put my concocting skills to work and followed the recipe ver badem and successfully created one of the worst cocktails of all time.. I made it 4 or 5 times (to be sure it sucked I guess), each was worse than the one before. Actually the 4th wasn’t so bad, but at this point I had worked up an immense buzz, making the results somewhat inconclusive. I spent the remainder hours of Thursday night wallowing face down in the floor in my drunken stupor, whimpering at my failed attempt at becoming the next, up and coming bartender. I eventually gathered myself together, cleaned the endless sticky remains of the devil cocktail, and began packing for my Friday escape.
After the blur of what was called Friday night, my husband and I drove several hours back home, stopping once to pick up a bottle of wine for dinner. You see after a night of drinking away our inhibitions, our dignity and our paychecks, we feel the need to redeem ourselves. Buying wine allows us to delusionally think of ourselves as cultured and civilized grown adults. We are by no means wine connoisseurs, but we do enjoy dabbling in the finer alcoholic beverages every so often.
The wine my husband selected is [ yellow tails’s ] Moscato. We had never had it before and it was absolutely delightful! It was sweet, fruity, and fizzy and was a great relaxing finish to a rather rough weekend. I highly recommend this wine to anybody who needs a great tasting wine that doesn’t need to be paired with a particular meal. This wine is fine all by itself! I also recommend checking out the [yellow tail] website. It’s cleverly designed for wine newbys (like me), and it shows all their wine selections and which foods go best with them.
[ yellow tail ] wines are a great go to, for nights with friends where you don’t necessarily want to go out and lose your mind. It’s a good, movie night wine with your date, or board game night with your girl pals. It’s extremely inexpensive and a great recovery aid for people who blow their paychecks in a single night of mayhem (like me).
