If you are living your best life then every day is National Wine Day, but for those who may have missed it this past Wednesday I am bringing you many options to live your best weekend now.
To consume and imbibe
In case you’ve never thought to combine your wine with your dessert, live the experience with Dark Chocolate Fudge Merlot Cupcakes from How Sweet It Is, this Cherry and Red Wine Cobbler, these Red Wine Milkshakes (whaaaat), or even Red Wine Hot Chocolate so you can avoid buying that weird chocolate wine you keep seeing at the store and are curious about despite yourself. Oh and try your hand at making Red Wine Chocolate Bon-Bons.
In case you’re looking to indulge your savory wine side, I bring you this Red Wine + Goat Cheese Risotto with Caramelized Mushrooms, this Beet Merlot Risotto, these Wine Braised Short Ribs, or this Seafood Gnocchi with White Wine Sauce.
Further Internet Spoils
Recommended reading: If you are against GMOs I would ask you very nicely to look at the science behind the issue and not just go with what may be a gut feelings.
Recommended viewing: From my alma mater. Bless.
The weirdest thing I found this week: Bless Tumblr also.
And last but never least, your weekly tip on How To Be A Better Human: Always help those who need it, even if they aren’t human. (But make sure you’re calling in professionals who know animal behaviors and not, say, putting a bison calf in your car which will only end very badly and sadly.)
A final word, or series of them.
Just imagine I am currently cheers-ing you from a pool float holding some delicious sangria, because that is my plan for this weekend if the weather cooperates.
Until next time.
