Part Of The Day At The Store.

Part Of The Day Tasting Possible Party Appetizers.

Just in time for the Champagne Season, Madrona Wine Merchants the announcement of their new temperature controlled wine cooler. Stop in for that cold bottle of bubbly, or even a white wine or two.

That was the post on the Facebook Page (hey, by the way, come like us http://www.facebook.com/madronawinemerchants). The cooler can hold more bottles, but you wouldn’t be able to see the labels easily.

Left the shop at 4:30pm and headed to Swanda’s to taste possible appetizers for a White Elephant party he is having in early January. My favorite was the mini-Beef Wellington, though it could use a little dab of crème fresh with some finely grated fresh horseradish to liven it up a bit. The artichoke bottom appetizer suffered from WAY to much dried tarragon, the meatballs were good, but gave me a little gas as they tend to do (something about meatballs, meatloaf ¯ even without any tomato products in them), and of course, Swanda’s deviled eggs were the hit once again.

Sort of didn’t need dinner after that, which might explain why I had a stuffed chicken breast and some cole slaw at 10pm.
