We all have those days. The commute home has been a disaster, practice ran late, we're all tired and cranky. We really need a Calgon moment, and figuring out what to cook, never mind cooking it, is beyond even our basic reach. So we do what we've always done. We grab for the take out menu, or bundle into the car to the nearest restaurant.
Baked ham is known as a famous typical Xmas dish offered in many nations around the world, which includes Britain and also the USA. This is often offered both cold and hot which is a tasty option to roast turkey.
Do yourself a favor and start with a gathering for friends. Hosting friends will take the pressure off of a situation when you're testing yourself. Especially if you're trying a new dish, like cooking a turkey and you've never done it before.
Christmas is almost upon us and I managed to taste and review another wine before taking a bit of time off for the holidays. Portugal is well known for Port. What about wine? The wine reviewed here comes from the Alentejo region of southeastern Portugal, not Port territory but in fact cork territory. I haven't been able to determine for sure the grapes of this 2007 vintage, but the 2004 vintage included the following red grapes, presumably in order of volume Aragonez (known in Spain as Tempranillo), Trincadeira, and Castello. So we have a relatively undistinguished wine region, and a blend involving two undistinguished grape varieties. Do I smell a bargain?
