i rarely drink alone. yesterday was a rare day. seriously. i've had a tough week....month... that's no excuse to drink, i know. i didn't really mean to. in my life i think i've initiated opening a bottle of wine 3 times. my husband, who has been uber supportive of my vegan choices for 19 years... now of my grassfed beef and...farm to table visions.. well you get the idea. well he got me this book for christmas: veggie burgers every which way. and well he was out and i was making one of these recipes while they might be giants were entertaining my kids. i was aiming for some sanity while also getting dinner cooked. it called for 1/4c of red wine. i usually just skip this part in recipes. but there was a bottle of wine on the counter. i figured ok i'll use it. i opened it. i remembered he told me to always taste it first. i did. it was so good. so i put 1/4c in the recipe and some in a wine glass. then some more. then even, some more... the veggie burgers came ok in one pan and mushy from the other. i still ate them. they were ok. but the wine was really good! and today is going well. better then the last week. we moved you see and my homebody boy is having trouble adjusting to this new home. he'll be ok. but in the meantime i think a little bit of wine is a good idea.
