March Madness

March 12, 2013 No comments

Technically, the term "March Madness" refers to the NCAA Basketball Championship, a single-elimination college basketball tournament which takes place each spring in the United States. But it could easily be applied to the weather (if you're on the East Coast, there was a snow storm on Friday, followed by temps in the 60s on Saturday), the time change (we sprang forward this past Saturday night into Sunday) and the celebration of St. Patrick's Day, which officially doesn't happen until the 17th but was nevertheless kicked off by endless parades this past weekend.

Tired yet?

My suggestion to countering all this craziness—and that's in advance of the wearing of the green—is to take it easy (as much as possible) this week. Ease into the week with a glass of wine at the end of the day (opened with your Original Rabbit Corkscrew, natch!) and perhaps a viewing of the Netflix hit, "House of Cards" (love that Kevin Spacey!).

Not into tv? How about getting a jump on your prep for corned beef and cabbage? Need an accompanying wine suggestion? Try a medium bodied red wine that is soft and fruity…and don't forget to use your Houdini Swish On-Glass Aerator!

Baking more your style? How about an Irish Soda Bread, which definitely goes better with a light, white wine (and be sure to keep it chilled in a Rabbit Wine Chilling Carafe).

In closing, try not to over drink or over eat. Remember, Easter and Passover are just around the corner!
