A Little Family Dinner Nite

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Last evening, a few family members gathered at my home to enjoy a pleasant dinner. I had created a couple Italian dishes, which included homemade Pesto, an Eggplant Parmesan, and another dish conjured from my imagination. In the third dish, I had tossed together in my crockpot, 1” Boneless Chicken Thigh chucks, along with Alfredo Sauce, Sour Cream, Capers and Sun Dried Tomatoes. I added in Lemon Juice and White Wine. It was served on a Bed of Egg Noodles.

The Pesto Sauce (made with Fresh Basil Leaves, Pinenuts, Parmesan Cheese and Olive Oil) partnered up with Fettuccini. I think it all turned out well.

However, one of the great little surprises of the evening - a bottle of wine which had been gifted to me by Don Anderson, a guy I had worked with at a software company years ago. He had given it to me about a month ago, when several of us had reunited for lunch.

My daughter, Jill, and I are always in search of good reasonably priced wines. And, I must say this wine fits the bill. The label is Georges Duboeuf 2016 Flower Label (Beaujolais-Villages). The contents of this bottle had a bright deep red cherry color and a delightful fruity taste. We loved it! Thanks, Don Anderson!

Hi Myrl, it seems you had a pleasant family get-together, and a tasty dishes, too. We love some of the wines in your area - we get them shipped to us from Runquist Winery. Amador county is not too far, right?

Hi Myrl- wow, all of your recipes looked like something out of a wonderful Italian restaurant!   Good food, family including a smiling Jill, and a gifted bottle of wine. Doesn't get much better than that.

Myrl Jeffcoat - Oh my! The menu you created and the photos too had me salivating! I'll bet it was delicious and no one went home hungry. As far as I'm concerned, you can't enjoy a great Italian meal without a good bottle of wine. Isn't it wonderful when you have thoughtful friends who remember the perfect bottle of wine just for you! 

I'm glad you have family time. I know you really enjoy making a special meal for them and enjoy their company. Since I haven't found a good show on T.V. to watch. If there was a Food Show on T.V. with you in the Kitchen showing us how you prepared your meal and just about the time the meal is ready, the doorbell rings and in comes your relatives and guests to sit down and enjoy the meal, I think it would be so much fun to watch! For me, it would be better than a show with Martha Stewart in the Kitchen.

Happy Monday Morning, Myrl Jeffcoat, and your dinner sounded so delicious. I wish that I was your neighbor and that we were close enough friends that I would get an invite now and then.  Still thinking of your Italian Chicken and Tortellini Soup.

Love evenings with family and boy, did you have the perfect menu, Myrl!

You can't go wrong with a good pasta dish (or as in your case, THREE!) and a perfectly paired red wine from Don Andersons!
