For tonight’s #DoodlewashDinner I’m bringing some grapes in honor of National Wine Day. I realize this is not actually wine, but apparently National “Drink Wine” Day was in February. I’m sure these days can be celebrated in the same fashion, but I do like the specific tone of the earlier holiday as I really love to drink wine! But for many of you who don’t, you can enjoy these grapes before they ferment. For you other wine lovers out there, this is our day to pull the corks out and enjoy!
I do actually really like grapes in their pure form and find them fun to eat. It’s like picking up a branch and plucking off little treasures. I’m sure the kind with seeds are the preferred for the raw crowd, but I just can’t deal with those. I definitely prefer seedless and the easy snacking that they bring. Of course, as I type this, I’m not eating grapes, but enjoying the day as it was meant to be enjoyed, with a nice glass of wine. In this case, a really lovely French Bordeaux that has a little medal on it because Philippe says those are always the best kind.
I normally write these posts before I have a glass of wine, but today I figured I’d mix things up in honor of the celebration. Actually, I’m just running super late as the day was a little busier than I expected. But sitting here now, enjoying this lovely glass of wine, I’m reminded that everything is just how it should be. I hope you’re all out there enjoying whatever it is that makes you happy on this fine day. And that you’ll forgive me for bringing so few grapes to our dinner tonight.
