Anyway, on to the superficial trivialities upon which this blog is based.
A festive pair of trousers and a Brooks Brothers navy blue merino wool cardigan, worn with a white oxford, black tassel loafers and bright yellow socks. My apologies for not having my usual "action shot" of the clothes, but it was a long night.
Not pictured: Roasted chicken legs with Herbes de Provence. Potatoes and carrots, roasted, plain and simple, with olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper.
Washed down with plenty, and I do mean plenty, of wine. We had plenty of Chateau Coupe Roses Minervois, a medium bodied and slightly floral red blend from the south of France. An extremely approachable and versatile wine, not too dear at $12.99 a bottle. Also on the board were a racy little baby Tuscan, and a bottle of Chinon that didn't get opened...I'm saving that one for tomorrow. Word on the street is we're getting snowed in tonight.
Finished off with spiced hot cider and rum.
Damn, we should do this more often.
