A Wine Lover's Nearly Weekly Review Of $15 Wine - An Israeli Red (Italian Grape)

This is my first 2009 ten dollar wine review. I took advantage of the holiday season to resume my reviews of pricier French and German wines. I have been drinking Canadian wine for decades and it has been getting better over the years. But I have never reviewed a Canadian wine until now. Even if the wine proves to be a disaster, I'll be reviewing more. But I can't promise you when.

In small towns all across America after WW II children shared bedrooms with siblings. Whole families shared one bathroom. Some families had a car. If dad drove off in it every morning he would take mom and the family to the stores on Saturday. In northern towns where there were commuter trains into the city, women, still in their robes and slippers, took husbands to the station to catch the 6:45. Dads on trains and buses had time for the paper and easy beef stew even read books.

I was simple beef stew initially concerned by the exterior. It's glossy, it's slick, and it looks more like the sort of eatery designed to pull in tourists rather than discerning locals. Don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful's just that I tend to prefer eating at restaurants beloved by locals when I travel, rather than eat at a place clearly just hoping to turn over average meals for tired tourists.

I also get inspired by recipes that call for a new or rarely used flavorings--as with this morning's stew recipe. I would normally default to parsley and thyme for a stew. But Julee Rosso's recipe for Beef Stew with Eggplant (from Great Good Food, p. 487) had me combining coriander and paprika with cinnamon, allspice and cayenne pepper! Who wudda thunk that such a wild combination would make such an intriguingly delicious stew?

Ales can also be used to cook with, giving richness and body to sauces and crock-pot style stews. Use a bit of ale in place of s ome of the beef stock or liquid called for in the recipe. Examples of popular brown ales include Newcastle Brown Ale and Pete's Wicked Ale, among others.

Although OXO states that this spoon is dishwasher safe, it usually gets washed by hand. When we are out camping I have no other choice, and when we barbecue at home, I always have other barbecue tools to wash, and since they have wooden handles they get hand washed as well, so I always do them all together. The stainless steel surface has held up nicely and it doesn't show water spots.

With Banquet Home Style Bakes you'll get 6% Iron, 15% Calcium, 6% Vitamin A. There is also 4 grams of sugar and 970 milligrams of sodium inside. Some of the other types of meals packaged by Banquet Home Style Bakes is their Creamy Chicken and Biscuits, Creamy turkey and Stuffing, simple crock pot beef stew and Biscuits, Cheesy Ham and Hash Browns and Asian Style Fried Rice.
Here is a wonderfully delicious homemade beef stew recipe. This meal smells wonderful cooking on the stove and will definitely please any hearty appetite.

Final verdict. I'd buy this wine again, especially if offered at bargain basement prices. But I won't tell my wine loving friends that I am serving a Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It is simple beef stew soup it isn't.
