CG, that looks and sounds wonderful! Sautéed grapes... What a great idea. Need to try that.

I made see you in the morning: roasted grape and onion tart with almond herb crust once. We weren't thrilled with the crust, too thick and heavy, but the filling was absolutely delish. I think we used what was left over as a side for roasted chicken or pork. Thanks for reminding me CG.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Caslon, but you could do this too! Put a fruit or two in with your greens and use a mild dressing. I used the Trader Joe's one in the image yesterday, but most of the time I use a champagne vinaigrette. Sauteed grapes are just grapes, cut in half, and cooked in a bit of butter. Not exactly hard but very tasty. Works well with chicken or mild fish. I bet red grapes would be good with pork...

Not mine. They were served with a sole or flounder dish I had at a restaurant. Make them with fish or chicken on occasion ever since.

Decades ago, before kids and when Himself was travelling on business, a non-relative "auntie" and I would get together. Bernice took me to this wonderful restaurant in suburban Cleveland that was once rumored to be a speakeasy. Instead of a big restaurant, White Oaks is small rooms, some with working fireplaces and views of the creek running through the property. Lovely setting, delicious food, a wonderful night out.

I'm so glad you responded to this and brought it up again!

I was just thinking my menu for tonight is looking mighty beige (bratwurst, sauerkraut and potatoes ) and some color would be nice. I'm going to add some red grapes to the sautéed potatoes and see how it goes.

If you take I-90 through OH on your trips up to MI, this wouldn't be too far off the highway for you. We haven't been there for over a decade, so I don't know if they have a dress code. I'm sure jeans would be a no-no, but dress slacks and a nice top (maybe a dress shirt with a tie but no jacket) are probably the norm. We always went for a special occasion, and we were younger, so we did dress up. Now I'd want to show up in jammies and slippers. Not gonna do it!
