    Carl: The one we had was with the apostrophe before the last S, not after. It was a Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet, 2012

    The beef and shrooms came out great, by the way.

    Odd, I never got an update new message or an alert for this thread.:(

    Glad to hear that the Artemis Dinner was a Success.:)

    Just had a nice WINE dinner with Merlot DUCKHORN Three Palms (name of Vineyard).
    Along with Duckhorm "The Discussion"
    Appetizers were served with Bertani "SEROLE" Soave 2011.
    Port with Desert.

    We are lucky to have a few Local Restaurants who team up with Distributors.
    The Chef, goes above & beyond to wow, and the Distributor usually adds something
    special. Then the Partnering Liquor store offers a Discount. WIN WIN

    Denton, what the hell are those colored packages, DISHWASHER or laundry detergent?


    I recall some of the first National Advertising campaigns in the late 60's
    discouraging Drugs use and The glamorous nature of Tobacco use...and
    of course the Marijuana gateway drugs activity. lotta good it did....or maybe
    it did? Hard to say if any of the PSA campaigns helped to save lives. I'd like to
    think it was more than pissing in the ocean, or into the wind, or up a rope.:oops:

    That sounds great Carl. A wine pairing dinner is how I discovered the Hearst Ranch Vineyards a few years ago.

    Cooking smashed potatoes with herbs de Provence and balsamic vinegar, grilling some NY Strips, and drinking Rodney Strong Pinot Noir. I am happy Diane feels well enough to want real food finally!

    I made some pastrami from a beef heart I had in the freezer. Cured for 11 days and while it should be smoked the weather didn’t cooperate so I wrapped it in foil after rubbing with the black pepper and corriander mixture and put it in a 240 oven for about 4 hours. Put in the fridge overnight and sliced thinly today (a buddy has a deli sliced which made it super easy)

    This was delicious

    This hit my FB feed today, and since I bet some of the youngsters on this fine forum have never had the pleasure, I post it for them:

    Medium rare over natural lump. Perfect. I enjoyed this tonight with 3 ears of corn, but no reason to pic the corn eh?

    This is probably more in the way of reddit.com/r/shittyfoodporn, but its cheap and quick and isn't half bad IMO. I've been making rice and bean burritos in bulk to put in the freezer and have been tweaking what goes in it.

    I start with 3 cups water, a knorr chicken stock cube, about a tablespoon of tapatio, tablespoon garlic powder, 1/2 tablespoon of old bays, 2-3 finely diced chipotle peppers in adobo, little bit of pepper and cayenne. Bring it to a boil to dissolve the stock cube and add the rice, reduce heat to low. After maybe 10 minutes or so I cube a chicken breast and add it to the pot. When it's all done I add a can of black beans and a can of refried beans, fill tortilla shells and freeze.

    I'll spare you from pictures.
