Any suggestions from my cellar for a Cabernet to pair with it. (Rubbed with salt, pepper, garlic, tyhme and EVOO. Served with horseradish, potatoes/mushroom au gratin and green beans.) Son and his fiancee are coming. And we will have leftovers on Christmas for just the two of us. So with your help, I will select two Cabs for with this roast.



That sounds sooo good.

You should see the photos of Mother's prime rib on Facebook. Looks fantastic. Can't wait.

I've not personally had it, but the 2005 BV Dulcet Reserve looks like it might be a winner...

Thanks, unfortunately I have to live knowing that more of it is only 10 feet away... must ... not... take... more.

It was totally worth the derisive looks from the plebes at Shoprite as I methodically went through the entire selection of roasts until I found one with good color and marbling ;)

You have to get the best. We start at a small shop where the meat is always wonderful. As close to a local butcher as we can get. I try to follow advice from Bowtie when it comes to meat.

I got one on Friday, with a letter as well, but it seemed like a generic letter. It was printed, but done so using a "hand-written font". Mostly junk, but there was a nice Kelty bag in there.

Doing some comparative tasting between a 2009 Sextant CS and another offering from the same house; interesting. The '09 needs some air yet, or a venturi...

We are also having prime rib--bone in! We have 2, so I may do one on the grill, and the other in the oven with the convection roast feature. I've always done it on the grill, so using the oven will be a new experience.

Now, to figure out a wine. Possibly a 99 Insignia. : )

Depends on the state, as usual with alcohol.
You can get to the pharmacy. They have their own register and they don't scan your membership card.
Also you can just say you want to sign up and they will let you in.

I just woke my kid up from sleeping. Damn you Sparky. I couldn't go put her back to bed because I was laughing to hard.

Costco let us walk around the store to see what they had before we signed up for a membership. That is odd that they wouldn't let you browse.
