Once more, with feeling

Ok, here's the last Beaujolais nouveau post. For now. I wanted to get a photo of what I got from the supermarket on Thursday. Three reds and one rosé, two bottles of each. We've already tasted the Violettes and the Chat Rouge red and rosé. In my humble opinion, the Chat Rouge red was better than the Violettes. That could be because it's Beaujolais-Villages rather than generic Beaujolais. The rosé was fine, but I wouldn't rush out for more.

Ken's going to another store this morning to look for more.

When I got up this morning, the outdoor thermometer read 1.8ºC (about 35ºF), and the deck thermometer read zero (32ºF). Brrrr! I'll be wearing my long-johns for this morning's walk with Tasha. She'll be wearing her fur coat, as usual.


  1. She's so stylish, that Tasha :)
    So... what's on the menu for Thanksgiving chez Ken and Walt?

  2. I take it that's one week's supply at your house? 1.8 degrees?!? I just returned from a walk on the beach because the frigid, damp wind was making my ears hurt. Its 18 degrees!

  3. 32 F. according to the radio when I awoke at 6 am. Brrr. I turned up the heat and started my breakfast preparations before my zoom french get-together (no teacher, just us students practicing our favorite language!) Maybe I will buy a Beaujolais if I can find that Le Chat Rouge when I go out, later. I will NOT be wearing a fur coat - BUT I could wear my FAKE FUR jacket! We have VERY DENSE FOG today. Stay warm Tasha. I envy your beautiful fur!

  4. Nice wine. That's a four day supply?

  5. judy, we'll have our traditional Thanksgiving gigot d'agneau!

    mitch, one week = seven days. I only see four bottles... ;)

    mary, I'd be surprised if you found Chat Rouge in the states. Let me know if you do.

    chm, see my response to mitch above. LOL!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
