On Sunday night Chris and I were going to have a nice steak barbecue dinner to celebrate my Google Adsense Break through. However, our neighbor had borrowed our BBQ as he was having a big family dinner and much to his dismay he discovered that his barbecue had suddenly stopped working.
Lucky for us, when Chris went over to get our BBQ he asked us if we wanted to join them for dinner as he’d cooked up several extra steaks, chicken breasts and lamb. I wasn’t feeling that great and since I’d meant our dinner to be a bit of a celebration we declined his offer for dinner. So … he loaded up two plates full of meats, grilled veggies and desserts!
The food he gave us was enough for four people!
Needless to say we didn’t barbecue our steak that night. We ate our neighbors bonanza of food. We also opened a bottle of Red Wine. It was an Australian Shiraz-Grenache. The wine was lovely. It reminded me of a beautiful Merlot that some doctors that I used to work with make in their Grimsby Winery – Thirty Bench.
We had a fantastic meal, accompanied by a wine that I’ll be sure to purchase again. In fact we enjoyed that wine so much that I’m thinking of joining a wine club so that I can try new wines regularly. We aren’t big drinkers, but we do enjoy a glass of fine wine every now and then with our meals.
As for that steak that we were going to have on Sunday evening … well we had it this evening. I’d put a marinade on it on Sunday and leaving it on that long turned out to have been a great idea. The steak was great.
