With these gorgeous warm sunny days we've been having lately (I deeply apologize if you are reading this and live someplace that hasn't warmed up yet. It will soon.), I've had a one track mind.
I know I talked about a Rose last week on Wine Wednesday but I found an amazing one and I just had to share.
Last Friday I was craving leek and potato soup so we took a family outing to Southern Season to pick up an immersion blender. It's officially my new favorite kitchen toy!
I was so excited because they carry Miraval Rose (Brangelina's amazingly delicious wine) and I had my taste buds prepped and ready for it! To my dismay, they were sold out of Miraval, but the friendly wine department expert suggested this L'Ostal Cazes Rose. It's $12 of bliss in a bottle!
It was so light and dry. I could have finished off the bottle in one sitting. I didn't, I promise.
It's made from Grenache and Syrah/Shiraz grapes. It's from the French Languedoc region. I totally need to go there one day.
When selecting a Rose, I almost always go for the very light peach color like this one. They are perfection! Try one! Promise you'll love it!
In case you have a hankering for delicious homemade leek and potato soup, we used this recipe. We used rosemary focaccia, duck bacon (from Southern Season) heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, and Laughing Cow cheese spread for the sandwiches. It was food heaven!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because I'm breaking all the rules today and wearing white jeans. It's only March. I was dying to wear them, so I did. And I'm in the South. And I was taught that's a no no. Oh well. I feel great in them and I'm not following that silly rule any more. Do you break the no white before Easter rule too?
