What We're Drinking Tonight

The bottle on the left is a Marietta Angeli Cuvée, a 2003 Alexander Valley red wine recommended by our waitress at lunch yesterday. The second bottle is a Pillar Red Box from Australia ~ a shiraz/cab/merlot blend that the purveyor at the liquor store insisted was damn near as yummy as the cuvée, as well as a smidge under half its price. So.

major dad has spent all day smoking country style ribs, I've doctored up some Stouffer's mac and cheese with kick-ass extra sharp Cabot cheddar and we will put said vinos to the test.

Let the games begin.

Being old farts, we only managed to kill the cuvée BUT. It was worth every lip-schmackin' dime.

We went out to a nice dinner on Saturday with another couple and they were all laughing at me because I can't drink anything at the moment or I'll go all Karen Ann on them. So I got to play designated driver while they all laughed and drank cocktails and wine and after-dinner drinks.

Food just doesn't taste as good if it's not accompanied by wine.

He (God) causes the grass to grow for the cattle , And vegetation for the labor of man , So that he may bring forth food from the earth , AND WINE WHICH MAKES MEN'S HEARTS GLAD , So that he may make his face glisten with oil , And food which sustains man's heart . Psalm 104:14-15

Of course the ribs and Cabotized mac and cheese would make men's hearts glad as well. Enjoy!

Spider, I knew Jesus was my friend as soon as I heard about him bringing the wine to the party.

The perfect guest; that's our Big Guy!

And as in the wedding reception at Cana, Jesus will even make more on the spot if you should run out.
