    Hey guys, I'm a little tipsy right now. Had a good bottle of wine. And I wanted to share this with you:

    Tonight I made coq-au-vin. Right now my family left the table, my wife is taking care of the kids before going to bed... and here I am, alone at the dinner table. So I'm going for the dish at the middle of the table. Grabbing a half-mushroom, a lardon, and a small piece of chicken, dripping some red-wine sauce on top, .. . BLISS!!!! /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    Lol.  This has been the Drunken Dinner Table broadcast. Thanks for tuning in.

    Your next report should be from a Champagne Brunch. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drinkbeer.gif

    I feel too guilty admitting what my guilty pleasure is. Maybe after I have some wine.

    Next time try better wine. Or maybe just one fewer glasses. Ha ha ha. That sounds great! For us it was a stiff Manhattannfollowed by roasted garlic chicken and steamed broccoli. I think there was rice too but my memories are vague. My guilty pleasure has become Manhattans served in a Margarita glass. That way the cherry survives all the way to the, albeit, too short-lived but bitter end.

    IMO one of the best price/quality ratio if you're looking for inexpensive wine. I think it's only $6.99 or something like that. And perfectly drinkable. Certainly good enough to cook with. Better than most $10 wines.

    In my opinion all good guilty pleasures lead to a headache

    Haha I was watching Woody Allen's new TV show, at one point he says "I read somewhere that you can add years to your life if you avoid anything pleasurable."

    The response to that is...

    "No, it won't but life will certainly seem  longer."

    I'm still waiting to hear about the "guilty pleasure".  That just sounds like a darn fine evening to me.  Nothing guilty about it!!!!

    I'm drinking one of my guilty pleasures right now with my beloved bride! Plymouth G&T.
