Bring out the bubbles!


 Did you ever have one of those days where it starts out with nothing going right, then at some point during the day the powers-that-be come along and hit you upside the head with some news that will put everything back into its proper perspective?  That was my day yesterday, and it was definately a good thing. 

Celebration was in order.  Lucky for us we were prepared.  Some good friends had given us this bottle of Asotoria 2006  prosecco  for our anniversary,  knowing our fondness for italian bubbles.  I know the picture isn’t the best, but this prosecco was very nice.   I only wish a certain cancer-defying family member lived closer so she could try some with us.

We did have dinner while the celebratory bottle cooled off on ice.  I don’t know what I was thinking actually using the oven in 100 degree heat, but lets just say the dinner was not as nice as the liquid dessert.  Turkey cutlets pounded thin and lightly coated with flour and parmesan cheese.  I browned them in the skillet and finished with a white wine pan sauce.  It sounded better than it was.  Maybe if the weather was a bit cooler outside and I had gone a little lighter on the salt.   Jason said he thought it tried too hard (?).  What’s done is done, I was too happy to worry about a salty dinner!  The picture was nice, so I will throw it in for good measure. Talk to you soon!
