My pasta looked positively frumpy!
Was a little dry, so drizzled some of my red wine over it and….wow! Made all the difference. Will try that trick again. Red wine sauce, whodathunkit!
Mexican style roasted vine tomato and black bean soup with cumin seeds, garlic, chilli, fresh coriander and sour cream. Toasted pain de compagne, mature cheddar and sea salt butter. Plus a Shiraz Cabernet blend!
Now, let’s talk honey and cinnamon:
Think there’s more to this than psychosomatic. Eating a dessert spoon of the raw honey before bed definitely helps me to sleep better.
Good to see supermarkets might be looking at selling “wonky veg”, ’bout time too:
Back to the main dishes:
Cremant de Jura mixed with cassis for a Kir Royale and then duck breast with roasties, onion gravy, fried courgettes and sugar snap peas. Wine was Sol de Mayo, Argentinian Malbec from Mendoza.
Tiramisu next with a glass of Elysium Black Muscat…..
Of course, if all that is too fiddly, there’s good old steak and kidney casserole with whole shallots and chestnut mushrooms, mash and sprouts with cumin. With a LFE Mountain View Merlot.
Followed by Tiramisu and the last of the Elysium Black Muscat.
Enjoy dinner, it’s not even Friday!
