Yawn.

Slow start on Turkey Day here at Roseholme Cottage.

Roomie has plans to commit cookery; rumor has it that we'll be repeating last year's wildly successful turducken feast. With Shootin' Buddy not being here, I will be able to drink the bacon-mushroom gravy straight from the bowl. I picked up an Argentine Malbec while getting the last minute ingredients at the store yesterday, and I'm looking forward to a very unproductive afternoon.

Re: the Argentine Malbec: did he make an outcry when you picked him up? What part of the country is his tribe from? Have they been featured in National Geographic?

"...bacon-mushroom gravy straight from the bowl."

Don't forget that a lady does this with an extended pinkie.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Malbec is the shiznatt. I did 6 gallons of Chilean Malbec from a kit last fall, and of the 30 bottles produced, I have a whopping 6 left. Good stuff, Maynard!

Currently in the process of smoking a beef brisket over apple wood for Thanksgiving. Malbec might go great with that, hmmm....

I've thought for some time that Argentina produces price/performance winners. Nothing like a currency devaluation to keep us in cheap hooch. As long as it's their currency.

So we should be good for another six months or so.
