“I tried cooking with wine. After 5 glasses,  I forgot why I was in the kitchen”

“I tried cooking with wine for the first time last night, after 5 glasses I forgot why I was in the kitchen!” is a jocular wine saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on Twitter on December 13, 2011.
 
“I love cooking with wine—sometimes I even put it in the food” is a related saying.

A note regarding the wine ….. saw a little saying “I tried cooking with wine for the first time last night. Afer five glasses, I forgot why I was in the kitchen.” Nope, I’m not that bad, but when I’m working on a major meal, a sip now and again keeps me a happy cook. 😊
