My friend Jean just shared this wine food pairing tip with me:

Thinking of GIVING UP WINE?

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

I got out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, "if I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless woman told me.

"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food," I asked?

"No, I don't waste time shopping," the homeless woman said.

"I need all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on the beauty salon instead of food," I asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the woman.

"I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!"

"Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you to dinner with my husband and me tonight!"

The homeless woman was shocked ..... "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know that I am dirty and I probably smell pretty bad."

I said, "that's OK, it's important for him to see what a looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments and WINE!"

Wine food pairing, sometimes you just have to laugh. CHEERS!
