and not put any of it in the food? wine

It's my day off ... I've just sat down for the first time all day after ticking off to-do list as long as my arm! whilst chasing a toddler around all day

It's going dark outside ... I'm not being THAT unreasonable am I? grin

Only half? Bit slow aren't you?

In fairness, the bottle's already open. It will be rotten by tomorrow.

YWBU if you didn't 'use' the other half! Sadly I'm now taking the dc swimming as I would quite like some too.

Brilliant! I was preparing pork with cider in the slow cooker this morning. Used half a can of cider and nearly absent mindedly swigged the rest of it! At 11am! Nearly...

I was going to say how much did you drink and how much went into the food even before I opened this thread.

Go on drink the rest it will go well with the meal

When I worked nights on a Friday I was off till monday so I'd drop come home get ds up and drop him at nursery and usually come back and chuck something in the slow cooker before I went to bed.

I came home and was prepping the meat so poured myself a class of red too as I'd had a tough "day" and was enjoying morning tv whilst I pottered in the kitchen. Dh was being picked up by a colleague that morning and invited him in for a coffee and to go over some stuff before they set off.

So there's me wine in hand, colleague shock as dh introduced me, and added "I do apologise she's a terrible lush, tea. coffee?" grin

Cheer up Raspberry. Make some nice chicken in white wine ^sauce ^(nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)

I'm ridiculously easily led. I'm going to open a bottle of wine as soon as DD is in bed to go with the other half of a chocolate box I opened last night after a thread about raiding the Christmas tuck. blush

I'm about to 'accidentally use' a very dry gin martini while making chicken and rice for supper. It's been a rough day!
