Food and the weekend, wine review

My sister and her BF are coming to town this weekend from Italy- YAY! I haven’t seen Elia since -OMG, has it been this long?- Christmas, and I have not yet met Michele, her extremely wonderful-sounding BF. If anyone would like to hire them, please do because it would be tremendous to have them here in DC.

In anticipation of cooking up a storm for/with them, I believe Mr. T and I might do take-out tonight or a simple grill. Have I told you about my incredible homemade BBQ sauce? Insane. Will talk more about this later.

Anyway, there is definitely a rhubarb dessert in the plans, and I think I’m going to have to make Yotam’s burned eggplant with pomegranate molasses again so perhaps we’ll have a middle eastern night.

While I figure this all out, I did want to tell you how freaking good the Qupé Bien Nacido Cuveé 2009 Viognier/Chard was last night. Mamma mia, that is a good bottle of wine.  DD/D, I really think this is the bottle we shared at Oyamel. YUM! I’m going to get more of this for sure- great summer wine. Keep a lookout for it!
