No

From our go-to winery, Chateau O'Brien's Apple Wine is the perfect mix of sweet and crisp, light and tasty. It's not at all syrupy, and has very little residual sugar. It's perfect for a summer afternoon.

Seared Scallops with Pommes

Seared Scallops

This was in response to our taking advantage of a recent livinggrouponsocial deal with Arganica, and opting for one of their more CSA-like "give me a box of random local, organic goodies." We're already, honestly, pretty damned tired of kale and brussel sprouts, and hoped this would provide something slightly different. We got... chard and turnips. Well, OK. The dinner turned out quite good, and is somewhere between classic French and New American. We made the chard into a warm salad by wilting it and steaming it with a bit of apple cider, then tossing it with vinegar and adding pecans.
