Raw and Woody

My mind is blank today so you get food pix.

Getting ready to put fresh asparagus and peppers on the grill.

Ready for the Grill

Sprinkle with good olive oil and coarse salt and cook veggies for about 10 minutes turning once.

Chill the Redwood Creek Cabernet Sauvignon because at room temp, you'll know why it is named after a tree - tastes a bit like sawdust unless you give it a light chill. To quickly chill wine, put wine bottle and ice cubes in a wine bucket or any tall container. Then, fill container with cold water. Turn the bottle a couple of times, spinning it in your hands. Red wine will be perfectly cool in about 5 minutes or less. White wine takes about 20 minutes this way. It's the fastest way you can chill wine at home.

Redwood Wine is Woody

I usually man the grill but it was hot outside so W4D did the grilling. His London Broil (marinated roast beef) is a little too rare for me but I enjoyed the roasted peppers and asparagus.

Rare Beef

And that's all I have to say about that.

But, of course there were martini's before dinner. I think you all must get tired of me talking about martini's ad naseaum so I try not to mention them more than say... 3 or 4 times a week.

I just tried Redwood Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 and found it to be quite decent for the price - I found it for under six bucks, and it was fruity but still had some complexity. Definitely a good deal for the price.
