party of one…

Tonight I was stag for dinner, but no need to feel sorry for me… I made sure to sit back and take advantage of some takeout and gave myself the night off!
An obscene amount of Chinese food was appropriately delivered to my front door… in this brown bag of tricks you ask?? Pan fried dumplings, boneless spareribs, spicy Hunan chicken and a quart of house fried rice! No I did not ingest all of this, however I did put an admirable dent. To wash everything down… a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp and fruity, offering the perfect balance to the Chinese food.
I have to remember this meal next time I’m on my own for dinner…

dining in… on takeout!!

After a battle with mosquitos, I said the hell with cooking! My decision was some delicious Chinese takeout and a fantastic bottle of wine. Once in a while you just have to indulge, plus it’s game night anyway so what better way to enjoy? Boneless spareribs, über-spicy sesame chicken and perfectly seasoned fried rice… The spareribs offered a slight gingery hint, and tangy ending. The sesame chicken displayed citrus notes with incredible pokes of heat. As for the fried rice, well what can I say other than perfect balances of flavors…
The selection of wine… a delightful and delicate Sauvignon Blanc. Fruity, crisp and the perfect accompaniment to round out this meal! Thank goodness that wine fridge is filled… I may be going back for some more!
