2/18/2019 - National Drink Wine Day Dinner

Not that we need an excuse, but today is National Drink Wine Day.



Light snow today, so I'll be making a pot of chili with a salad on the side. We'll be drinking some wine, of course.

We need a reminder?

I'll be eating soup tonight. I made a big pot of beef-veggie soup for my master gardener class tonight, and I'll sample whatever the other committee members bring.

Since everything outside is a sheet of ice and my boy had the day off, I taught him how to make marinara sauce from scratch (well, canned tomatoes).

Then he made fresh tagliatelle like he did the other day, and also used an old George Forman grill to make a few chicken breasts.

So, tonight is grilled chicken and pasta a la the boy.

I'm doing a Beefy Ratatouille and adding Orecchiette pasta. Garlic Texas Toast on the side.
Whoops..almost forgot...a bottle of good wine.

Retrieved a frozen boneless turkey breast from my Thanksgiving parts turkey and pan roasted it. We had salad, stuffing and pan gravy to round out the meal.

I had to make a late change of plans. I thawed some chicken thighs, cut open the vacuum bag, and got hit with a funk that made me step back a few paces. So, that went to the trash. I have a pork loin in the Sous Vide circulator now. The planned side is some Boudin.

It's going to be a late supper tonight.

Bucky, sure sounds like your boy is becoming quite the home cook!

No wine for me today - I'm out and didn't feel like going to the store. I had produce to use up, so dinner this evening was another salad - romaine and lots of crunchy veggies, chopped hard cooked egg, and julienned beets. Topped it with Marie's ranch dressing and garlic seasoned croutons. Pretty yummy.
