Things I Put in my Mouth Part 2

As I mentioned last week, I've been on a quest to find this white wine I had over Christmas. So far, I've had many different white wines, but none have compared. I almost believe that the wine I had doesn't exist. Or maybe I'm remembering it wrong. I don't know...my cousin says she thinks she knows what one I had but that particular wine is only available at the winery in Niagara and I'm not going there any time soon. So, that leaves me with a taste testing extravaganza (and by taste testing, I mean drinking the whole bottle.)

This weekend I tried this one.

My selection process is either by recommendation, or like in this case, one I just randomly picked because it looked good. I like Pinot Grigio in general and this one was okay, maybe a bit too tart for me...or too dry...it wasn't terrible though. I think I just needed to pair it with the right food and Mrs. Vickie's salted chips wasn't it.

I thought I'd also include something else I truly enjoy putting in my mouth: POUTINE! 

I LOVE poutine. As meal on it's own, with something else, I don't care, I'll eat it. This particular poutine comes from Mary Brown's and it's their tater poutine. OMG, sooooooo damn good! I don't even care so much about their chicken, it's this I truly want.

In other somewhat related news, something I've recently learned from a friend (I've yet to do actual research for myself), is that wine messes up your teeth and not just from possible staining. My teeth have been so sensitive lately even with all of my usual methods to prevent sensitivity. A friend of mine told me that it's because I've been drinking so much wine which eats away at the enamel. Booooo!! Wine, why you gotta be like that? 

It's not going to stop me, of course, I'm not a quitter, but if anyone has tips to prevent more teeth sensitivity, I'm all ears. I've been using sensitivity toothpaste and mouthwash but so far it's not working as well as I'd hoped. 

Anyway, that's it for this week. Tune in next Monday for another taste testing result. 

*Be warned that I'm stuck at home for the next three weeks with my kids so I may actually be drinking more and the posts might ramp up due to my insanity prevention methods.
