Probably make some of those yummy truffle smashers to go along with the beasties with some greenies for the veggie crowd. Will be stopping by Central Market tomorrow you need anything Bill?
I don't think so...just make sure you get Yukon Gold Taters and a few heads of garlic. What time and do we have a theme for juice?

Sorry to interrupt your love fest here.

I'm meeting Dan and Shel Teng for dinner at Nostrana tonight, so I don't know for sure what I'll be having but Margherita is definitely on the agenda.

Tomorrow . . .who knows? Sunday? Nuts, popcorn and beer. Maybe I'll make some chili or throw a whopper on the grill at halftime.

Short ribs that we got from BJ's last week and I cooked off on Sunday last. Served them to the FiL tobe with creamy polenta and a mixed greens salad.

Patty Green Old Vine Estate Ribbon Ridge '06 for slurpees.

We'll be manging the leftovers tonight.

Sunday I'll be making a poultry chili (cheeken/turkey) and guac. Football fare all day!!!

No dog in that fight since the Giants $hit the bed.

Today is my birthday so my wife is preparing a mixed grill of quail, bison and beef tenderloin. Serving that with a sauce of tomatillo, applewood bacon and roasted pumpkin seeds. Opening a 1961 Fontefredda Barolo to wash it down.

Friday: Ethopian at home. Yebeg wot (lamb with red pepper, garlic, onion and ginger). Spongy bread of course. This paired best with an Italian Moscato d'Asti. Second best with 2002 Roederer l'ermitage champagne. Did NOT go with Fox Creek Vixen shiraz, too high in alcohol and too tannic. OK with 2001 Dom du Monteillet St Joseph Cuvee de Papy (this wine is shutting down. Was fabulous 3-08, tighter now). We drank all the 2001 Jaffurs Thompson (killer bottle!) before the lamb was done and the 2006 Tablas Creek Mourvedre was unfortunately corked.

Saturday: homemade pizza. One with fresh mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, basil and white truffle oil. One with fresh mozzarella, proscuitto and sun dried tomatoes. No wine, just Jones Cream Soda as I'm planning to catch a movie later and need to drive.

Sunday: no clue yet. Depends on if I can get anyone to come over for superbowl.
