Rotisserie Chicken, Cabbage salad and roasted red potatoes
After we finished this wine, Matty asked me to get some more ...bitch. I did not slap him.
Gala, Braeburn, Golden and Red Delicious
On Monday we had one of my favorite easy meals. A rotisserie chicken from Wholepaycheck, roasted red potatoes and insalata de Mariana and some great wine (a full bodied grenache with a saucy name). Then we had brownie sundaes, not pictured, and an apple tasting. We love apples and Henry loves to talk about varieties. He knows that Nana loves Red Delicious (ack) which is America's fave and also the one famous for it's role in Snow White. Tall and lovely with creamy yellow flesh, thick bitter skin, no shelf life and a taste that deteriorates rapidly when cooked. He knows that Johnny loves Granny Smith, Auntie Mamy loves a good Macintosh, Mommy loves Cox 's Orange Pippin which is an heirloom variety that you can find at Little tree (in NY) and small ones farm (in MA) , Auntie Annie loves Pink Ladys, Grandma's fave is eluding me at the moment is it also Granny Smith? Anyway, for Christmas Henry got a gem of a book filled with lovely watercolor illustrations, histories and descriptions of all varieties of apples including popular varieties and lesser known varieties. Did you know that there are at least 4 varieties of apple featuring Uncle Jona's name? There is also a variety called Mollie's Delicious. Whenever possible, we taste and read and learn a bit more about one of our favorite fruits.
