Old Trunks is back to her original theory:
RED MEAT RED WINE
WHITE MEAT WHITE WINE
I am willing to say the subject is too complex for someone who drinks cranberry juice with her supper while her husband drinks milk.
And if we are to have a glass with company, it will be like grandma and grandpa, chokecherry is the only flavor~~although it won't be chokecherry because we don't make wine, (yet) either. Nor will it be wine cut with 7 up to make it go farther.
Instead, a short glass of warmed sherry, unless I have put it in the brownies or used it to marinate beef will serve us fabulously.
And if in a travel, I should buy a bottle of wine at some winery in the middle of the USA, we may share that.
And if we do feel a need to buy something highly complimentary to the dish we are serving, I will rely on the clerk at the bottle store to know. If, when served, it is NOT what we would consider compatible, then, I guess we better find a different clerk or keep our mouth shut.
To all of you who know wine, I congratulate you. BOWING.
