This is midweek of my vacation. It is so nice to be home and just doing whatever I want to do! Today, I went into downtown Ann Arbor for a haircut. Our sons met me and we had lunch at an Indian restaurant and then I meandered on home, stopping at a nursery on the way home to pick up some climbing vines for our pergola.
I was in the process of rubbing two pork chops with a spicy rub when Tony stopped by and said that he and Tommy would be coming for dinner after they played a round of basketball. So, I put the pork chops away and got out some chicken that I also had in the refrigerator (I only had two pork chops; not enough to feed all four of us). I quickly changed gears and prepared the chicken. I also scrubbed potatoes to bake alongside the chicken. I whipped up some biscuits, I scrubbed and sliced carrots for sauteing, and I peeled about 9 apples for an apple crisp. Now, everything is baking in the oven and Tom & I are having a cocktail while we wait for the boys to arrive. I thought this Argentine Malbec would be a good choice for our chicken dinner. This wine is abundant with blackberries, leather and pepper on the nose. The taste is lush with plums and pepper and smooth tannins. I like this very much. Also, this is a good one to let breathe a bit because the more I swirl the better it gets.
On another subject, for those of you who are interested in high-quality nutrition, please check out: http://www.shopgbg.com/MelodyWerner. I purchased this cutting-edge liquid vitamin to have each morning (in lieu of a multi-vitamin). I like this product. If you purchase this product, not only do you get the incredible health benefits of the product, but you can also share your (automatic) website with others. Yes, it is network marketing (which has always had a bad connotation with me), but now I see the advantages and understand the idea behind a marketing plan that is completely word-of-mouth. Check it out if you are interested!
