Saturday saw a trip to the local Wal-Mart Supercenter to stock up on some essentials and get a few finishing touches for dinner I made for the in-laws. We had some really nice filets that I marinated for about eight hours in:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 T mustard seed
I also made a nice Salmon filet for my mother-in-law that I dusted with a little citrus seasoning . Both were grilled on my indoor Jenn-Air which I've just started using the last couple of months and it does a really nice job. In case you didn't notice the label above let me tell you we had a great bottle of 2005 Bogle Chardonnay with dinner. I know, red with meat but I like to throw out all the rules when drinking wine. I got this bottle for $9.32 less my usual 20% discount and it was worth every penny. I've had Bogle before, at a much higher price point, and have always liked what they have to offer. When I open the store I will definitely carry their wines! They've already got an Arkansas distributor and some weird state law, of which there are plenty, says once a distributor carries your product they, and only they, can carry it. There will be many laws set forth in Arkansas that I'll have to deal with when I open. Oh well! Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often!
