What I’m Drinking

Man, this Empty Nest bit is tough at times. Luckily Daughter was home last weekend so we decided to open a nice bottle of vino

I found a 2005 Mondavi Cab in the closet. My goodness was it lurvly: full of sweet cherry jammy yummability and the seven years had aged it as smooth as silk.

It went really well with the big honking filets, canned green beans and mashed spuds Daughter wanted

Hope she comes home again soon…

    Don’t tell me Claude went hungry!

    “Going hungry” is not a concept he has experienced.

  3. Syd B. says:

    I’m now -17 lbs on my diet which forbids just about anything I love to eat, including potatoes. Nothing better than hot mashed with a big wad of butter. I’ve made copy of your pic so I can eat it for lunch.

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    Well in the interest of your diet I guess I won’t mention the cream cheese, feta cheese and pecorino/romano cheese I added to the potatoes.

  5. Syd B. says:

    Now, was that necessary?

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    It was, actually: I find that just butter alone doesn’t supply enough flavor.

    Bet she does too…

    @Syd – print it on rice paper – at least you’ll get SOME nutrition out of it… (seriously, good luck with the diet)

  8. Syd B. says:

    Why, thank you KK. I’m only 3 lbs away from my objective at which point I intend to celebrate with a butter tart.

  9. Ave says:

    Congratulations Syd!. What good work, I know it’s hard because I’ve done it too.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    Indeed, good work Syd!

    Good news, Syd! May those last three pounds get out of town soon.
