Out of the Blue

The storm that hit yesterday wasn't as bad here as elsewhere, just some rain and snow, though there are reports of deaths associated with this, so we were obviously lucky, and our thoughts are with those less fortunate. Today is the third day of Christmas, which will explain things if your true love just gifted you with three French hens, two turtle doves and a, well you know. It also seems exceedingly quiet for game news, so while I was planning on doing another full roundup at the end of the day, there may not be much happening, so we'll just play it by ear. It seems likely things may not pick up again until after the new year. We shall see.

Ahh yes, Xmas the one time of year that allows me to nourish the gourmand in me. Currently on my plate, muslix crackers, a pear and roasted garlic chutney, Camenbert, Grueye, St. Paulin, Manchego, Mimolette (damn it's pricey), Fontina, some fresh pear, apple and melon, Ardennes pate, and un bouteille du vin du Savoie. I'm a pretty effin happy camper atm.

Yummy yum yum. That sounds delicious.

Gonna do some french bread, manchego and jarlsberg tomorrow for our guests, with smoked salmon and a salad. A muscadet and maybe cocktails to drink.

Not pretentious - can get that stuff anywhere. And not expensive - the wine is 10 dollars a bottle, tops, while the salmon (Acme brand, Brooklyn) is $12 and feeds the whole family. And boy does it taste good. ^^

Heh, I forgot that I had some Jarlsberg too! It's always been one of my faves. Pre-food cocktail suggestion: Satan's Whiskers. Wine suggestion: Albarino. It'll go well with all three. Better than Muscadet which is quite a bit more oily - and I'm a man who loves his Loire whites!

And to tie it all together?!?! Endive and Frisee Salad with Blood Orange. They'll go haywire over how perfectly it all comes together!
