I've had good sausage made with lamb, like merguez and a very interesting, smokey, Icelandic, lamb sausage. Poultry just makes such sadly, flavourless sausage.

My husband and I were going to go out to dinner last night, but it was stormy, so we decided to have our date in house. Went with a cheese board, charcuterie board, various chutnies and jellies, bread, cranberry and fennel crisps, grapes, and cauliflower fritters with a fig and mustard dipping sauce.

That's festive. What a great way to rescue date night and avoid the storm. Ooh, it includes cocktails and bubbly with the food.

DH and I went out to celebrate my birthday. DH had an Apple Manhattan and I I had a Pineapple Upside Down Martini and we started with a crispy pork belly appetizer. For dinner, I had a cider-marinated pork chop with mac 'n cheese and BBQ gastrique. DH had duck over polenta. For dessert, I had a warm brownie with ice cream and frambaise (raspberry) wine while DH had banana pudding with a glass of Sauternes. It was magnificent.

Always the bubbly. I'm a big fan of Prosecco, and with its price, why not always have a bottle or two in the house?
