Wine Wednesday- Cooking with Wine

Tonight was a night for cooking with wine and of course drinking it as well.  I’ve been eyeing a linguine with clam sauce recipe for some time now and finally decided to make  it tonight.  I was doing the food and my friend was bringing the wine.  As I was shopping I remebered I needed a dry white for the recipe.  Knowing that she was going to be bringing a nice bottle of wine for us to drink, I allowed myself to give into Whole Foods wine deal of a bottle for $2.99.  I was slightly hesitant but clearly not that much because I did indeed buy it.  Staying true to my $2.99 bottle of wine classiness I didn’t even wait for it to chill before I tried it, I just added an ice cube.  Believe it or not it was not bad. Three Wishes Chardonnay, I think, actually is a nice dry wine to cook with and sip on.  And of course I loved the whimsical look of the label.

We also enjoyed Mirassou Chardonnay with our dinner.  It was a crisp chardonnay but with heavy sweet notes.  It was a bit sweet for my taste but if you are look for that in a chardonnay I suggest this one cause you will love it.  The label is simple but elegant with the sun around the “M”.
