TJ's Mixed Seafood Blend in Alfredo Sauce on Saffron Fettucine with 1997 Grgich Hills Chardonay

Last night for dinner we had TJ’s Thai Mixed Seafood Blend, seasoned with granulated garlic, onion powder, onion pepper, SI Spicy Seafood Blend, and tarragon; in Buitoni Alfredo Sauce, with a bit more tarragon; on Rustchhella di Abruzzo Saffron Fettucine. We enjoyed a 1997 Grgich Hills Napa Valley Chardonnay with the pasta - fill a half inch down from the capsule, cork colored a third of an inch; color a medium yellow-gold, good secondary yellow and white fruits with adequte acidity and no signs of oxidation; with a medium long developed fruit finish.

Then for dessert we had, while watching practice for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Brazil, Banfi Grappa di Montalcino and a nice sliced ripe pear, given to us by Laura Chancellor. This willl be the last Grand Prx of the season.

Does Laura have a pear tree?

As I recall, she once brought some summer truffle to your house too. Sounds like a good friend.

The Archibald’s are very good friends of ours. I don’t really know if she has a pear tree or trees.
