This morning it was cold, about 50 degrees by 8:30 but I bundled up and rode to Campbell Road. When I got home I made us open face sandwiches of lax and onion slices on Jewish rye spread with cream cheese.
We then picked the Lima beans from our one plant this year. Here is Suzette after the successful harvest.
Around 11:30 we drove to Uptown. First we stopped at the Apple Store pwhere Suzette made an appointment. Then we drove to Trader Joe’s and bought artichokes, 1/2 lb. of fresh mozzarella, cognac, Chianti reservation, Alero Spanish rose, two bottles of Famille Perrin Reserve White Cotes Du Rhone, an Amontillado Sherry, Chateau Haut Sorillon red Bordeaux, a bottle of Kirtland’s private label Pinot Noir, two bottles of Tuella Portuguese red and a bottle of Italian pbeef white wine produced by Gavi for $7.99.
We then drove to Total Wine and used our coupon for 20% of on European wines and 10% off on spirits to buy two bottles of Suzette new favorite scotch, Shieldaig, a bottle of Berneroy XO for $29.99 and 12 bottles of wine including a Campo Viejo Rioja Reservation for $9.97,P five bottles of Conte Priola Pinot Grigio rose, which is my new favorite rose, at 7.49, an Anne K Alsatian Riesling, a Famille Bougries Vielles Vignes Chinese Blanc, a Marques de Caceres Rioja Rose, Sable de Carmague Gris de Gris, a Domaine Toussaint Sancerre, a Herdade Peso red Portuguese from Alentejano,
We then were called from the Apple Store so we returned and While Suzette talked to a genius I went next door to the Eddie Bauer store and found an insulated wind breaker for $180.00 that was 40% off, which. Bought for $115.00.
At 2:00 we drove to Costco and ate Polish Dogs for lunch and then bought a package of lamb chops, detergent, Brussels sprouts, a kilo of Brie from Isgeny du Mere in Normandy for $10.99, raisins, a water pic, and mayo and did a tour of the food booths.
We got home around 3:30 and rested after we unloaded all of our purchases and watched TCU get beaten handily by West Virginia. At 5:00 I drove to El Super and bought yellow onions for $.20/lb.
We rested and at 7:00 grabbed a bottle of Tuella and the lamb chops and drove to Cynthia and Ricardo’s. When we arrived Cynthia had appetizers of 34 crackers, sliced salami, olives, and slices of cheese.
Then for dinner we grilled the lamb chops on a bed of fresh rosemary and served them with sautéed chard, an interesting Israeli couscous, baby garbanzo beans, and orzo medley from Trader Joe’s, Raita made with fresh chives and mint and some garam masala seasoning, and Cynthia’s special cauliflower slaw on the patio.
Cynthia then built a fire in the horno on the patio and we all pulled up chairs and chatted until 10:00 when we went home to watch Saturday Night Live.
