Sooooooooo tired. Need my bed. But first, a quick post because we had the most fabulous dinner!
In classic wine country dinner party style, when Anne and I walked into Hardy’s tonight, he had about seven bottles of wine open, a spit bucket on the table and two “special” bottles of wine wrapped up in tin foil for a “surprise tasting”.
Guess what they were….
That’s dirty south style
, for sure. And they actually were really good. I tried both this chardonnay and the cab and actually loved the Chard. Smelled like buttered popcorn and tasted even better! 😉
We also had another secret weapon at dinner:
Oh yes we did.
So, anyways, we made lamb chops with homemade tzatziki, israeli couscous with meyer lemon zest and feta, carrots and fennel, green beans with lemon, garlic and olive oil…..plus the tots. Obviously.
If you’re eating lamb chops and drinkin’ Georgia wine, you gotta have tater tots! I haven’t had them in FOREVER and they were sooooo good. ‘Specially when you dip them in a mixture of tzatziki sauce + ketchup. Only thing missing was hot sauce! 😉
We had a salad with pressed tofu and balsamic dressing to start:
And then, here’s my dinner plate with a little bit of everything:
It all was amazing and somehow dinner ended up being a three hour wine tasting……georgia wine beating california wine!!! I actually didn’t drink that much at all (just tastes of everything), but it was so fun to see which paired best with what.
and I just walked home and this was me five minutes ago:
