Don't be afraid!

I had a pretty long day yesterday. So by the time I got home I was wiped out and definitely didn't feel like cooking. I needed something super simple. Hello freezer. Speak to me.

Potstickers. Excellent. I can make some sticky rice and I'm done. Not the most nutritious meal on the planet. But no one will go to be bed hungry. And I have some champagne from my TV shoot today which I might just have to drink with my potstickers. Say what?

Yes. Champagne, or, Sparkling Wine actually. It goes fantastic with spicy asian food. And, the new handy champagne stoppers really work in the fridge to keep the bubblies bubbly.

So there you have it. Don't save champagne for a special occasion,  it will make those frozen potstickers taste super duper special. This rule goes for wine with every day foods too. Just because you're eating something simple doesn't mean you can't enjoy it with a great glass of wine.  Like burgers, they go really well with practically any red wine - try cabernet, zinfandel, merlot, or malbec;  the next time you have a margharita pizza try pairing it with a red zinfandel; or how about a nice Malbec the next time you make spaghetti and meatballs?

So now you know when you see me at P.F. Changs, with a glass of champagne, that I'm not strange.  Well, I am strange. But my choice of drink is not. So there.

Changing subjects.......

Watch this. It will put a smile on your face. I guar-an-tee it!!

Thanks to my friend Sue Keever for sharing it on Facebook.
