The two wines of this weekend.

Also some notes about why and whether to hold a wine in your mouth for 30 seconds while tasting – warning, it can be unpleasant!

Tonight we had roasted cabbage and beets with our steaks, as well as some bread baked for a dough we forgot and left here at the lake house after Christmas. Conclusions: roasted cabbage is ok as a way to use up cabbage, but not worth buying it to make specially; and even though the recipe I use for bread is fine when you keep the dough for a week or even two, three weeks is definitely pushing it.
