Looking back it was easy...

Another week, another few dollars...

I decided, recently, to discard my idea for making a "Kit-Kat" dessert. Instead, I plan to make a "Take 5" style frozen dish. Essentially, it will break down like this:

1.) Crushed Pretzels
2.) Peanut Butter Ice Cream
3.) Peanuts
4.) Caramel Sauce
5.) Frozen Chocolate Mousse

Today I put together the base for my Peanut Butter Ice Cream and tomorrow I'll make the mousse and freeze the ice cream. Should be good...

I'm also going to make Peach Clafoutis this week. For those who don't know, I'm a big fan of peaches. I really like making my own peach cobbler, and whenever I make Sangria I always try to slip one in. Anyways, this is a dessert that is traditionally made with cherries. I'm not big on cherries, and I'm less fond of pitting the little fuckers so...



Jungle Jim's is now carrying a great new wine that Kerrie and I are becoming very fond of. (Baxter, are you paying attention?) The wines are by Lost Vineyards of the World and they really are pretty good. Good for those of us who like value, and enjoy a good "table wine" to go with a meal. Kristy and Tom, I'm sure, can appreciate a wine like this because it's a lot like the 2-Buck-Chuck but a bit better tasting. At $2.99 a bottle, this stuff is a steal. My personal choice right now is the Argentina Red Table Wine. Check it...

London Broil was on sale this week, so I'm excited about making that except I think I left my broiler pan in BG. Nevertheless, a nice LB with a rosemary demi-glace and some roasted root veggies will be a nice treat this week. Word...

Till later: Eat sumptin, drink sumptin, get rich...

Thanks for the recommendation - we burned out on 2 buck chuck long ago. The new hotness? To fill up a wine case at trader joes with different wines under 5 bucks and see which ones are actually drinkin-worthy.

p.s - when Tom isn't claiming to live on the west-sieede (we live on the north side), he still throws the W. C. stabbaz signs every so often.

Please don't ever start deep-frying candy bars and try to pass that off as dessert. You have more talent than that. When I saw the 'Kit Kat' in your blog I almost $hit a milky way
