It’s a Friday night during Lenten season so we are having this tuna casserole that I made with fresh mushrooms, peas, onions, pasta, etc. It seemed like we were in the mood for some comfort food (casserole) rather than some other type of fish dinner.

I got home from work a little early today and went for a 5 mile run. It was so cold! But the hot shower afterward was great, as is this pretty indulgent dinner. Tom is leaving shortly to serve on the clean up crew for the Fish Fry that is held every Friday during Lent. So I will send him off well fed. We are having this Australian go-to wine that we like very much. Nothing fancy. Dark fruit but still dry and not fruit bomby. So drinkable and totally enjoyable. Cheers!

Delicious French wine with a tuna casserole, steamed green beans and salad. Lovely. 20120322-191947.jpg

Orovales Rioja (2007)

It is Monday night at the Werner household. I have prepared a tuna casserole and it is in the oven.  We both had rather hectic days at our jobs and now we are relaxing, reading the paper, listening to music, staring out the window, feeling the breeze. What a great way to rejuvenate after a demanding day at the office.

Looking out the window, I see nothing but bright blue sky. It is a beautiful summer night in Michigan. The grass is green, the trees are green and the sky is bright. I really love Michigan.

This Spanish red Tempranillo is delicious. It’s fresh and lively yet complex and spicy. The palate is full of concentrated fruit flavors with a vanilla and oak finish. Love this; a definite reorder. . .

I am going to serve our tuna casserole with fresh tomatoes and green onions from my garden along with garlic toast and green beans. (The casserole has elbow macaroni with celery, cream cheese, a white sauce, onions, dry mustard. The topping is Grape Nuts in melted butter [for crunch]).
