I have lots to do to catch up from being away, but tonight is just a time to relax, read the paper, listen to music and enjoy the comforts of home.
After unpacking, I rummaged through the refrigerator to see what I could put together. Happily, I had a bag of golden potatoes and some good kielbasa. So, I washed and cubed the potatoes, chopped some onions, and cut up the kielbasa to brown in a skillet; then I added chicken broth (and, later, some green beans) and let it simmer. It smells good.
This Amala Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine club selection. I have gotten to the point where I pretty much trust that a Cabernet from California is going to be good. This one doesn’t disappoint. Lots of fruit on the palate with oak and vanilla on the finish. There is nothing not to like in this one.
Cheers to my sister-in-law Janet who drove from her house in Reston, VA to visit me while I was in DC. We had a great evening together talking and laughing (alot). What a lovely person and I am lucky to call her my sister.
