Wednesday-BIG DADDY CHARDONNAY

Wednesday had me heading back to The Rock after a quick two days in D.C. In the interesting things you hear in an airport department, I'm sitting behind a guy in the gate area, who is some type of wheeler-dealer, who has a series of loud, continuous conversations about different Democrat Presidential hopefuls. He tells one person that Kerry is "definitely out" and I'll be damn if I don't hear the same thing this morning, Thursday, when I crawl out of bed. He was also telling someone that Edwards wanted the backdrop for a presidential forum to be held in 4-5 months to have "more golds and blacks" and less blues. Sounded like really important stuff! Just remember, if you're gonna talk loud on a cellphone you gotta expect someone to report it in a blog.





Got home around 6:00 p.m. or so and had a couple of glasses of BIG DADDY Chardonnay, the 2003 vintage. This vineyard is out of Mendoza, Argentina and T was able to get a great deal on this which I got at $3.99 a bottle. Reminded me of my 2 Buck-Chuck day's in Illinois. It's oak barrel aged, very tropical fruity aroma and fresh and full on the tongue. My only complaint is that it had a little alcohol aftertaste that I'm not too crazy about. Can't expect much out of a 4 year old Chardonnay selling for $3.99 however. Accompanying my first glass was a decent Chicken Enchilada Casserole #1 picked up from Super Suppers. #1 used to frequent Dream Dinners in Illinois and if they ever open a location in The Rock I'm afraid Super Suppers will go under. Dream Dinners had much better recipes and their portions were twice as large for the same money. A slight recommendation for the BIG DADDY and for Dream Dinners if you can find one! Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often!
