I am not as good at eggs as I should be. I cook them very rarely, and almost never over-medium, the way I like them in the diner. I think I’m using a pan that’s too small for two eggs, actually, and I think I’m impatient. If I had a bigger spatula I could probably flip both eggs at once in the small pan, but alas, I do not.
(Time to go to Spatula City!)
I make really good scrambles, of course, but that’s about the ingredients and finding tasty things that taste great together. And an omlette is just a scramble with pretentious aspirations, make no mistake.
At least I’m trying to start the day off right with tea and eggs.
I bottled my second batch of wine!
It’s another kit wine, this time from “Cru Select.” It’s a Chilean blend of Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and I call it Chilean Mystery Blend because I don’t know the percentages of each, nor really anything about the grapes’ origins. On the provided labels, the description says this: “Opening with dark roasted notes of coffee and chocolate with a hint of blackberries, fermentation on Cabernet Merlot Genuwine Winery Dried Grape Skins and French oak completes this monumental taste experience.”
I have more pictures and notes and such after the break, but the takeaway here is that in 10 days or so, I’ll have a new wine in rotation at the Casa Fredonia.
I don’t have any pictures yet, but I racked. In less than 2 weeks, we’ll have bottled wine, which is exciting. If I ever get paid again, I’ll be buying a new thing of juice and starting another batch. Pictures and details will eventually make their way onto the forum, of course, but I’m just excited about the fact that more wine is about to make its way into my coffers.
