Daily Diary: Dinner With Friends And My New Favorite Wine


Last night, my husband and I was invited out to dinner. We opted for outdoor seating… and then the skies opened up. Thankfully, the restaurant had an over-sized outdoor patio which was covered. We were able to eat and enjoy ourselves despite the bad weather.


My friends were pushing alcohol on me and I kept refusing. Then Barbara begged me to try her favorite wine, Riesling. Apparently, she thought I would LOVE it because this bottle was a sweeter white. I took a sip just to stop the conversation from continuing… and it blew my mind. Holy unbelievably delicious! There was ZERO zing at the end of the drink. I hate wine because of that after taste you get which I am so not used to. HOWEVER, this Riesling had nothing. I kept asking if it was real wine because I didn’t believe them!


Now I know what to order when out with friends.

Do you like Riesling?

  1. Nice! ‘Bout time you joined in on the family alcohol train.

    Do I like Riesling? No. Too sweet, too white. Not a white wine fan. Except for maybe a nice Pinot Grigrio and to drink that it needs to be 100 degrees out and Im on a patio.

    Give me a robust and dry red: Malbec, Shiraz, Shirah, and Meritage, Multipulciano and Im set!

    PS- your hair looks really blonde! Looks good!
