Part of the reason why I’m looking froward to dinner is because I will be bringing not only the Bacon Cheddar Scones from yesterday’s post, but also wine.
In the past, wine hasn’t been my drink of choice, but mostly because the really dry wines aggravate my heartburn. As I’ve leaned towards the sweeter wines, I’ve enjoyed them more. I’ve tried some wine and food pairings on dinners out and enjoyed it.
I don’t know if I’m at the point where I’m ready to do wine tours and uncork a bottle just to watch TV, but I feel like there’s no better time to try my own hand at pairing wine and chow than at one of the most ceremonial dinners of the year. I picked out two Moscatos and a Chardonnay for Charlie’s mom, but I tasted it, and it was so good, I might finish whatever she doesn’t drink.
Who knows? Maybe this is the beginning of a new holiday tradition.
