The W(h)ine Hour..

Every household has one…the whine hour. It’s those bewitching hours between approximately 5 and 8pm in the evening when the kids go crazy and moms across the world lose their minds completely. It doesn’t matter if you have babies, toddlers, kids, tweens, or teens; those hours of dinner/homework/bath time/ bedtime can just about do a momma in. What is a girl to do? It’s simple and brilliant actually, just slip in a little wine of your own! Now, I’m not suggesting anyone down a bottle of whiskey everyday between the hours of 5 and 8, in fact if you do that you will have a few whine hours of your own the next morning. Basically, a little wine during the whine hours will keep you out of the padded cell at the local cookoo house where people will walk by and peek in your little window and say things like “aww, poor mom has lost her marbles” and “hmmm, now that’s a crazy one right there, sits in there all day and hits herself over the head with a Barbie and a hotwheel”. Don’t smirk, it can happen.

So, enjoy the tales of my whine hour, and how I survive each and everyone of one of them with a sense of humor and a good bottle of wine! After all, the whine hour comes around every single day, a girl has to be prepared!

This is no joke people

This is no joke people, I have a serious Wanker problem at my house.  Here's the latest in Wanker's escapades.

Apparently Wanker wanted to play a game on the ps3, wonder if it was MLB11?

Last night we had veggie burgers.  We have been having veggie burgers for about the last 2 years and everyone here loves them.  Last night while chowing down the little one stares at his burger and says, "Well that's weird, there's a carrot in my burger."  Why is that weird?  "Why would there be a carrot in my burger?"  The middle one without missing a beat or even turning around says, "It's a veggie burger smart one why wouldn't there be a carrot in there."  This started the kind of epic brawl that only a large family who shares a meal together can appreciate. ;)  Always starts off kind of comical and then ends in tears and with a hacked off mommy. Good times.  Good times.
I do recommend the veggie burger, carrots and all!  Everyone loves them and they are quick, easy and healthy.  I buy the Morningstar ones which oddly enough are in the frozen breakfast section at the grocery store....nobody wants carrot burgers for breakfast. ;)

You can throw any kind of  wine with a veggie burger, even some Boones Farm although I wouldn't recommend it if you're over the age of 16 and don't want a massive headache the next day. ;)  I nice heavy chardonnay is probably a better choice.  One of my favorites is the Cupcake, but I also like the Flying Piano which is a little fruity but good.  If you're going to have veggies in your burger, you might as well go ahead and have a little fruit in your wine.  See, being healthy's not so hard. ;)

Happy Wednesday!
