Do you ever have those days when you are craving 2 or 3 different dishes and just can’t decide which one to eat? I have been craving pasta carbonara like crazy, but Cinco de Mayo is coming up so you know that has my heart aflutter with thoughts of all kinds of Mexican food. Then Mother’s Day is closing in and that always makes me think of tasty brunchy kind of food. What’s a girl to do, aside from sitting down to a table full of food and totally dismissing whatever ideas she had of fitting back into a bathing suit this summer?
Nay nay I say! We shall not blow our calorie counters out of the water my foodie friends. I will save the day by mish mashing all of my crazy cravings into one fantabulous dish! Ya that’s the ticket!
Did you know that May 9th is National Moscato Day? Yes, it is a day dedicated to a wine that has quickly become one of my favorites. So Gallo Family Vineyards and the Sunday Supper family came together to celebrate, and I had to come up with something wicked tasty to compliment it. That was hard to do though because it goes so well with so many things. I love it with Asian food, it is perfect for nights when I just want a bit of cheese and bread to nibble on, it is awesome with desserts, and it the perfect brunch wine, but the thing I love it with most is spicy dishes. I know you might think that it wouldn’t work, but I am here to tell you that it is bombtastic! Something about those wonderfully light citrus, honey, and peach flavors just seem balance everything out perfectly, and who am I to mess with perfection?
Now, let me gush a bit about this dish.
OhhhEmmmmGeeee people! It has everything in it! It is spicy, but not too spicy, is has the tang of the sun-dried tomatoes, the creaminess of the egg, the saltiness of the cheese. Holy cannoli Batman, it is AH-MAZING!
If you had told me, before I made this, that I would love something more than pasta carbonara I would have laughed in your face. But the joke is on me. So I guess I will have to laugh in my own face!
Haha. Take that me!
OK, that was just weird I know. But I tend to get super weird when food makes me this happy. It is kind of my thing. So just go with it OK? Don’t make me feel like I am uber weird or I will get all self-conscious and stuff and then I won’t be able to make you more awesomeness like this.
I can foresee many weekend brunches this summer on my back deck. A nice big bowl of this pasta in front of me, and a cold glass of Gallo Moscato in my hand.
Enjoying the sunshine, my family, good food, and awesome wine. Can it get much better than that?
You know, I used to be a strictly dry wine lover. That was until I gave Gallo Family Vineyards’ Moscato a try. They have a white, pink, and red versions available, so there is something for everyone, and All 3 of them are amazing. I have to make sure that I am well stocked when the family comes to visit. You can best believe that this Mother’s Day will see a table full of delicious brunch dishes paired with all three of these fabulous wines!
