TAKE A BREAK FROM MIT/OBAMA
Supper tonight was chicken sandwiches and a delicious chicken/vegetable soup that my wife made. My wife puts in bok choy, onions, sweet potatoes, chicken breast with rosemary, a garlic clove and chicken broth in the slow cooker. The first night we have the chicken breast and vegetables and then she added peas and butter beans and more broth to turn the left over into a soup.
We do a lot of cooking in the slow-cooker.
When she cooks pork she adds apples, onions, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, the pork and chicken broth. The apple onion combination goes together well.
We have wine every night. The wife usually has a glass – I have two or more… We buy good bottles of wine for special occasions, but we (I) go through so mush weekly that we buy Carlos Rossi Paisano by the gallon for our vino de mesa (wine of the table.) My wife likes Clean Slate Riesling for a white wine. We particularly love Portuguese wines – they are great wines at a great price…Portuguese wines are hugely underrated.
