Wine Down Wednesday

Every now and again, I like to just ‘wine-down’ and relax.  Sort of.

It’s really more of me sipping my wine while cleaning up.  Yea, you can find me vacuuming the house and in one hand there you’ll find my little ‘ol wine glass.

That’s me relaxing.  That’s a mom’s way of relaxing.

Just pour me a glass of some Pink Moscato and I’m on my way.  Don’t forget my cute little wine glass while we’re at it.

Isn’t it funny?  How, us women can be sitting around with no makeup, yoga pants, overly large t-shirt, and our hair a mess – with a cutesy little wine glass – and still, we have a sense of elegance?  There’s just something about a wine glass that makes me feel fan-freaking-tastic.

Hell, I like to even make a meal that pairs nicely with my selected wine.  (Look, I’m not afraid to go all out with this type of thing!)

A woman needs to feel fancy some times, without having to get all dolled up.  Don’t get me wrong, I would so spend a few minutes getting all fancy to just sit around my house.  But, let’s face it, I don’t want to waste my makeup, and I feel fancy enough just holding the stem of that wine glass.

I found this Pink Moscato at my local Aldi’s.  They’ve got great prices on their wines I’ll tell ya.  For a great price too.  I don’t mind a cheap wine…sometimes, it’s what I do.  I decided that I needed to make something light to go with such a ‘light’ wine.  So, I made this zucchini dish.

IMG_8868With zucchini, tomatoes, and feta cheese…you really can’t go wrong.  I found the recipe on Pinterest, you can find it at Bargain Briana. What’s great with Pink Moscato, you can enjoy a sweet wine with a slice of pizza.  Who would’ve thought?  Some more food pairing suggestions:

  • Glazed Ham
  • Lemon & Rosemary Chicken
  • King Crab

Do any of you like Pink Moscato?  Is there a wine you’d suggest me trying for my next Wine Down Wednesday?

  1. I seldom drink, but I will have a glass of wine every once in a blue moon. I’ll have to try this brand of wine sometime. Also, that zucchini dish looks scrumptious in every sense of the word!



  2. That looks like a perfect way to celebrate getting halfway through the week. I’m not a big wine drinker, which shocks my Italian family, so sorry no suggestions…
