Meat & Potatoes kind of night

Had my special little friend, M. over for dinner tonight. He is a meat & potato kind of boy, so we sauteed some lean and mean hamburgers with simple browned garlic and salt and pepper. Can not have a mean burger without super crunchy Alphatatos from Ian's! For dessert we made homemade ice cream together. This was the BEST one I have made all year - cookies and cream! I am not kidding when I say the best, I will have to post the recipe later as well as photos (can not get our new camera to download to my computer). Come on back though, you will not be disappointed!

Getting Naked ...........

In response to Wine Blogging Wednesday # 36, we sought out a bottle of "Naked Chardonnay". I found a very nice 2005 Four Vines Naked Chardonnay for about $15. We put it on ice and enjoyed a "fantastic" glass of wine! Full of nice crisp apple flavor and very buttery. I thought I would miss the Oak but I actually fell in love with the roundness of the apple and butter flavoring - some what like carmel! Highly recommend it!

Summer Tart

I was pretty excited when I went to the grocery store today and saw two of my favorite summer time items: figs (and lots of them) and dry-farmed tomatoes! So tonight I was inspired to make this recipe that I saw in Food & wine. I did tweak it somewhat to give it my own personal flare & I must say, it was FANTASTIC! It will become a regular veggie dish our in our home! L. loved it as well, even though, he did say "it would be nice spicy!"
