Today is day 2 of the Wine with Mallery Advent Calendar! Today I actually found a wine worth drinking so be sure to check out the video and/or the very bottom of this post for the details. I really hope by the end of this calendar I get used to talking to myself for 10-15 minutes at a time; at least when I talk to Godzilla (Baby Michael) he makes noises back at me so it seems like we are having a two sided conversation. 🙂
Wine with Mallery cliff notes for those who can’t watch the video…
I had a hankering for donuts today so while Michael was out and about I had him pick me up some, he immediately asked if I was pregnant… uh no! It wasn’t until I ate two, really bad, donuts that he told me he didn’t need me getting fat, or something along those lines. I love you too Babe!
Please note this is coming from the man who told me I had birthing hips while we were dating!
Me “Bring me home some donuts. I want a good glazed donut, maybe something with a chocolate frosting and/or something stuffed with cream.”
Me “No I’m not pregnant! I’m pretty sure I’m on my period right now.”
The Schuplins attend about 8 Christmas parties and as sucky as that is, I dig it… sometimes. On Christmas Eve you will find us at the Cowan Christmas brunch where we indulge in some delicious breakfast casserole, among other food! I like traditions so much that if the breakfast casserole ever went away I would be HOT!
I got a bright idea, those do happen to me, when I was sent some Miffy’s Marvelous Muffins for Thanksgiving, what if we incorporated muffins into our brunch so we can stuff our faces even more? These muffins might be from a package, but they are totally customizable, MOIST, and no one would be able to tell they aren’t homemade!
Trader Joe’s Viñas Chilenas 2011 Merlot
One word- YUM!
Seriously, this wine was a much better pick that the train wreck of a wine I tried last night. I didn’t expect anything less than amazing because it came from Chile, everything from Chile is delicious. This Merlot is a smooth and fruity wine, with a nice finish. This is a medium bodied wine that you won’t regret trying because the price tag is a mere $3.99! I tried it solo and with my pasta dinner, although, it doesn’t pair well with donuts… 🙂
I received some Miffy’s Marvelous Muffins in order to facilitate my review. All opinions, pictures and experiences are my own.
