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…

crisp and delicious!

After another Saturday full of decorating for the upcoming Halloween holiday, the decision of what would end up on our plates, bit more importantly… in our bellies!
One can only deal with Chinese takeout or pizza that much [I mean don’t get me wrong, I am a lover of good Chinese and a fantastic bottle of wine] but tonight I wanted something a bit lighter, full of intense flavor and still satisfying…
A chef salad was the perfect way to go! Crisp and cold lettuce tossed gently with red onions, green olives, hot peppers, plump grape tomatoes and rolled provolone, ham and turkey in an olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing…
Mmmm what a perfect decision that was and some leftover to have alongside tomorrow nights dinner!! I just love double duty dishes…

vino + takeout + more vino…

After a long day, I decided takeout was the best alternative. So while waiting for its arrival, what better to do than open a wonderful bottle of wine, sit back and relax. The wine was fruity and crisp, with a slight punch! One glass turned into two, which turned into three [you get the picture]… Who needed the takeout??

takeout and a movie…

Tonight was the perfect night for take-out! I tossed around the idea of pizza or Chinese, and guess what Chinese took first place…
Chicken with broccoli, a super spicy sesame chicken, sweet and smokey boneless ribs, as well as a gratis order of dumplings… A fantastic bottle of wine was the perfect accompaniment to the wonderful flavors each dish offered! Now it’s time to uncork another bottle and perhaps watch a movie!
What better way to enjoy a Friday evening…

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, ├╝ber-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!
