The Week is Half Over Let's Celebrate!

Wine Thoughts

White:  Aviary Chardonnay 2012.  This is just a great food wine for chardonnay lovers.  I was pleasantly surprised at the subtle oak of this wine.  I experience apple and pear at first and then a bright crispness at the end.  It's rich yet balanced and will go great with the chicken. 

Shopping List

2 shallots
1 head of garlic
2-3 yukon gold potatoes
1  5 oz container baby lettuces
1 endive bulb
1 pomegranate

4-6 chicken thighs on the bone

1 8oz container creme fraiche

1  15 oz can vegetable or chicken stock
Extra virgin olive oil
white balsamic vinegar

Organization and Other Thoughts

  • Check your pantry.  Do you already have: extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, a head of garlic?
  • We have been using the Colavita extra virgin olive oil and think it is very good.
  • If your grocery store doesn't have creme fraiche you can substitute heavy cream
