Day 21 – Nothing Like a Good Bottle of Wine

2013.03.14There is nothing like a good bottle of wine.  It fits perfectly with dinner, whether roasted vegetables or a nice thick steak.

My friend, Mac will tell you that I don’t often buy a good bottle of wine.  He would be right.  Most often, I grab a bottle of Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon for $5.99 at Kroger and drink a glass with dinner for three nights in a row.

But every once in a while, I get a nice bottle.  Every so often, I purchase a bottle of wine that is a step up from my usual lower-shelf selections.

One glass is all I need to enhance the flavors of my meal.  I don’t down the bottle.  I don’t consume the container.  I simply enjoy the good flavor of a good meal and a glass of Cab.

Tonight was one of those nights.  I ate my food, staying under my calorie goal for the day and relaxed with a beautiful red wine while Purdue got beat in the Big 10 Tourney.  It was a nice evening.  It was a perfect way to end my day.
