“Oh chariot, your golden waves, Are walking down upon this face…” So as I’m browsing the wine section at Trader Joes Yesterday, with a carriage already filled with
eight two bottles of wine, I turn the corner, and see MY FAVORITE WINE! Its called Chariot Gypsy..not really a sweet, not really a sour red, but the perfect mix of heaven on my palate, and I legitimately started singing “Ohh Chariot..” My finances first comment was “you’re a dork” his second “is it really that good” (because by this point I was already asking for cases so I didn’t have to clear off their shelves) and his third “how many cases are you buying?!?” Well my friends, it really is THAT.GOOD. And just to prove it to him, I made a little italian pasta dish last night, so he could really get the full effect.
You know when somebody really works something up, like realllly works it up, and then you try it and its such a let down…well I’m happy to report that this wine did not disappoint, and neither did this pasta dish! It was EXCELLENT! It even surprised me..I went back for a full plate of seconds, which I usually try to avoid when it comes to pasta. I had a different dish entirely planned for last night, but when I found that wine, then I was browsing Cooking Light (because we all know it’s the New Year, and these ‘healthy’ resolutions last a few weeks, I figured Id join the masses) and saw this dish, I had to do it, and I am SO glad I did! It was phenom! I’m usually not a leftover eater, but I’m already pumped for lunch today!
So do yourself a favor, go buy this wine, because they only get it in 2-3 times a year, and its cleared off the shelves within days, (although it might only be one day with how many cases we took with us) Come to think of it, we probably looked like extreeeemley irresponsible parents with carts full of cases of wine, and a baby in an infant carrier! Oops! Oh well…we’re not old, we still know how to have a good time! 😉 And GO MAKE THIS DISH! It was delicious, we could not stop saying it..it got to the point that Drew had to put it in the fridge before we could keep going back for more..you know, outta sight, outta mind? (Thankfully that worked!)
I hope everyone is enjoying 2012 already!!
