The Incredible Bulk

The five year old has a pair of enormous green Incredible Hulk hands. A Christmas present, rather than his actual hands, obviously. Anyway, you wear the Hulk hands over your real hands and then bash things, whereupon a voice from the glove shouts: “Don’t make me angry, you won’t like me when I’m angry!” The two year old has taken to copying this cry but with his own brilliant interpretation: “Don’t make me hungry….you won’t like me when I’m hungry!”

How I wish we’d had these gloves in the house when I was last pregnant. Having said that, breaking into the wrapping on the dark chocolate would have been a bitch. 

This week’s white in the fridge:
Saveur Veritables Viognier, Maurel Vedeau 2008, £5/bottle,
Viognier. Ah, Viognier. Peachy, round and often misunderstood. It’s the Joan Holloway of grapes (and for non-Mad Men watchers, I love Joan). This Southern French take on Viognier is actually more subtle than the often-high-in-alcohol versions from the New World but with gorgeous textured white peach and grapefruit flavours. Drink in abundance. Or in a bun dance. That might liven it up. 

Current red on the side:
The Big Kahuna Red, £4.99, Tesco
We seem to have become a bit bored with Australian wine. It has been around a while. Sometimes they can all taste the same. Blah blah blah. Hang on a minute! They usually taste GOOD. That is not the same as tasting samey. Maybe it is because drinking Australian wine is not the same as the russian roulette experience of drinking – say – French wine (one bottle great, the next an expensive mistake) that has led to the apathy. Whatevah. This is juicy stuff, full of redcuurant fruits and sweetly balanced. 
Lovin’ it x

    I can often be overheard whinging, "I'm Viognier thirsty, you won't like me when I am Viognier thirsty". It's a great varietal, who in good conscience would deny me a glass or two?
    Great post by the way!
