Ever try Prosecco

I watched the Everyday Italian show today on the Food Network. She made a drink using a bottle of Prosecco. Have you ever used it? Is it very expensive? I think she said it was like a champagne. It looked so good.
She also had a very good hint if you have leftover chicken stock. Just pour it into a zip lock bag and put it in the freezer.

I saw that show, Joann. From what I've been told, Asti Spumante is also Italian champagne. I do love it. Would love to try some prosecco.

I saw that show about 3 months ago and now have a bottle chilled in the refrigerator, waiting for any excuse to be opened. Any suggestions or excuses girls?

Prosecco is Italy's version of Champagne. It's good. If you like Champagne or sparkling wine you will like Prosecco. No, it's not that expensive. You can get a bottle for around $12.00.

She's baaaaack,
I love it, Dh popped the top and we each had a glass before dinner and I'm now having a second with some strawberries and peaches...I've been dipping the fruit into the glass, messy but it tastes great.

Notice how her text went from standard type to italicized (sp?) type . . . .

With DH there with her, we're gonna need Tony from [/i]Lady and the Tramp[/i] to serenade . . . . . . .
