I have read that there are health reasons…something about red wine is good for my heart.
Nice to know, but I would drink a glass of wine regardless.
A Glass of Red Wine
Sipping a wonderful, full-bodied red wine brings me joy.
It is a bridge between my busy day and the still of evening.
It reminds me of happy times with family and friends over the years.
It reminds me of my travels. Red wine in little cafes all over Europe.
Refilling our plastic jugs with red wine in rural Spain.
Opening a bottle of red wine that was so bad that we put soy sauce in it. It did improve the flavor! I don’t recall the country.
Drinking red wine in “glasses” we fashioned from Vienna sausage cans we wiped clean on the train to Marrakech. The Marrakech Express!
In a corner of my basement, bottles of red are waiting for their turn on the stage.
Open to New Ideas
So, I do not need any more reasons to drink red wine.
Yet to prove that I am flexible in my thinking and open to new ideas,
Here is one more reason to open a bottle.
My clever friends inserted wine corks in the lids of their cookware.
No searching for a pot holder. No burned fingers.
Sadly, these lovely All Clad* pans live at my friends’ house and not mine.
Yet another reason to drink wine!
