Mundane Monday: A Toast to the New Year

The Mundane Monday photo challenge has added themes for the new year, and this week’s theme is bottles.

WineBottles

As 2018 opens, I have 3 unopened bottles of wine in my kitchen: 1. Veuve Clicquot, the champagne our realtor bought us when our offer on this house was accepted; 2. Woodbridge, some wine that a guest brought to our housewarming and we never got a chance to open; and 3. Petiole, some wine that I recently bought at Trader Joe’s that was grown in the Willamette Valley, where my daughter goes to college. I didn’t drink that either. Yet.

These bottles are all sitting in a corner of our kitchen counter. I’m struck by how dark the materials are that the counter is made of. This is trendy, but our old kitchen was lighter and I preferred that. There’s also a knife block next to the bottles. These knives are old and no longer particularly sharp. I have a gift card; maybe I will use it to buy some new knives.

I’ve also been thinking that I’d like to learn how to make a few new dishes in the new year. Cooking is not usually my favorite activity, but I do like making dinner with nice tools in a modern kitchen while sipping some good wine. Maybe I can make that happen more often in the New Year!

For the Mundane Monday Challenge #141.  Mundane Monday Challenge encourages you to take more pictures by being aware of your surroundings. The philosophy of MMC is simple. You can create a beautiful picture even by focusing on a very common looking, dull or so called Mundane subject!

  1. We have a lot of wine sitting on the counter, too, though it feels like we drank more during this holiday season than usual. I was just perusing the sales over at Zazzle.com and saw where you could order special labels for wine. I’m tempted to plant vines along our back fence and see what happens! 😀

  2. Hi KL – they sound interesting wines – I’ll be over for the Veuve Cliquot!! Great that you’ll be upping your culinary skills and new knives will make that an easier goal to pursue … mind those fingers – enjoy 2018 – cheers Hilary
