Out with the Old, In with the New and the Weekly Menu

The weather is still pretty warm here during the day but the nights are chilly and perfect for bonfires so fall is in the air and now it is in my house as well.

I removed all my summer knick-knacks and decor and brought in the Fall decorations.  I will put out the Halloween decorations in a couple of weeks and work them into the landscape and then replace them with the Thanksgiving decor once Halloween ends.

Sazon Goya Grilled Chicken Thighs and an Old Vines Garnacha #WorldWineTravel

The World Wine Travel group is still traveling around Spain this year.  It has been such a fun adventure.  This month we are visiting Navarra.  I opened a bottle of Bodegas Nekeas El Chaparral Old Vines Garnacha 2018 that I paired with a casual dinner of Grilled Chicken Thighs that had been marinated in olive oil and Sazon Goya seasoning, steamed rice and fresh buttered corn off the cob.

The Teen and I had gone to get our nails done....well she got her nails done, I got a pedicure.  We called Frank and let him know that we were on the way home and he made this delicious dinner for us.

Chicken Kreplach #LitHappens #FoodiesRead

 It took me a long while to read the book The Family by David Laskin.  Not because it was a bad book.  In fact, it was an interesting look at a Jewish family, some who migrated to other countries and some of whom remained in their home countries during the 20th century.

This book was chosen by Amy of Amy's Cooking Adventures for our Lit Happens Book Club.....
