Exactly! I'm in both, because I get his Zins with Club 1869 (including the InZin), and his yummy Mountain & Reserve wines with the Griffins.

On the other hand, I still get the wine club discount if I order his other wines (Jana, etc.) as needed.

Win-win!

Does anyone remember which cheeses Mr Handal's daughter was serving at DnD? I could have sworn one of them was a beehive, but I can't remember which one. Was it the barely buzzed? I think that was the only one that was rubbed. Just trying to correlate to the woot plus deal.

Can you prompt me on the details?
I've got already cooked spiced beets, and feta. What else, besides greenery?

Agree, but what was in it? I didn't hang in the kitchen...

[edit] oops, read the whole thread Ron.

Ok, I guess I did ok. I had some beets I had pickled/spiced earlier. Just chopped them up and tossed over some green stuff and topped with feta. I thought there was something else in there as well; nuts, dried cranberries, something else?

Nope. No nuts, no dried cranberries, nothing else but what you see in the recipe above. I think the shallots work with the red wine vinegar and the EVOO to give a little sweetness with the beets that are wrapped in foil and roasted in the oven for about an hour - hour and a half, depending on the size of the beets.

Now, the Spinach Salad with Roasted garlic & pine nuts, that's a different story!

Spinach and Roasted Garlic Salad Serves: 4

12 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 lb. baby spinach
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup Romano cheese, plus more for sprinkling
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375°.
Place garlic cloves in a small baking dish or foil packet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30-40 minutes until golden brown and soft when pierced with a sharp knife. Remove from oven, pour garlic and oil into a small bowl and mash garlic in oil with a fork. Set aside.

Meanwhile, place pine nuts on a baking sheet and toast in oven for 6-8 minutes until lightly browned. Set aside.

Place spinach in a very large bowl. Add garlic in oil and lemon juice and toss until well-coated. Drizzle remaining 1/2 cup olive oil over spinach and toss until well-mixed and spinach leaves start to wilt a bit. Add pine nuts, Romano cheese and salt and pepper and toss again.
Sprinkle with additional Parmesan and additional olive oil if desired and serve.
