Or: Old Friends And New– Magdalena’s and RedWhite&Blush
First, Magdalena’s On The Square is now Magdalena’s Restaurant at Copperfield Commons in Georgetown, Indiana. The website is still under construction, but the restaurant is open. Imma go.
RedWhite&Blush, selling “Wine, Cheese, Gourmet Foods & Gifts”, just opened where Colokial gifts used to be, Colokial having consolidated itself into it’s New Albany location. I went in and looked around the other day.
Kathy Hoehn, one of the owners, showed me around with enthusiasm and graciousness. They have one entire room filled with wines. Kathy said, apart from the local wines they carry, she chooses wines not only because of their tastes but also because they aren’t wines you can find just anywhere. If I could afford it, I would ask her to choose a wine for me based on my tastes. While I don’t know a not-very-good wine from a better wine, I do know a superlative wine when I have one, because I had one once and I knew it.
I can attest to the deliciousness of the cheeses, because our vegan daughter bought us some for our birthdays. UM YUM! Yes, a little pricey, but it takes less good food to satisfy your appetite, if you can afford the initial outlay.
Anyway, that’s the food news from our house today. And remember what Jerome K. Jerome said in THREE MEN IN A BOAT:
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need – a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
