I'm amazed, people actually read my posts! People other than Bill (who reads blogs professionally) and Kerry (who just wants to know what I am up to). So, thanks to my two commenters, I decided to take their recommendations and cook!
Toast Points with deviled spinach (spinach, eggs, bacon, onion and celery with home made mayo (can you tell I've been watching Top Chef?))
TJ's Fillet Mignon with mushroom/wine reduction. Thanks for the tip Todd!
Steamed Asparagus with lemon butter
No dessert (it has been on overindulgent week.)
And the wine - thanks to Jason who has an amazing wine blog
Abrazo Del Toro Tinto tonight we are "embracing the red bull" - I'll let you know what I think.
Nice. First pour while I was cooking, very smooth. I took a few sips and then used the balance of the glass in the mushroom reduction. By the time, I had a chance to pour another glass, the bottle had opened up and developed a deeper taste. Some tannin, kind of a deep cherry aftertaste. It really has held up to the steak and asparagus. Nice wine, good price. Thanks Jason, good recommendation!
