One change of note -- the wine gets opened much earlier now, sometime between 4 and 5pm!
Tonight's TGIF menu features grilled rainbow trout atop wild rice and quinoa pilaf, surrounded by stir-fried carrots and broccoli. The wine is a 2007 Pinot Noir from Cattail Creek Family Estate Winery, Niagara-on-the-Lake. For dessert there is a fruit compote of organic musk melon and wild blueberries drizzled with Grand Marnier.
A piece of fine dark chocolate (70%) closes off the repast.
I know it's cruel of me to give you the menu but not an invitation. I can hear a collective sigh...
An integral part of TGIF ritual is family, however many of us may be present.
Claim, renew, celebrate your own TGIF ritual.
And it's almost time to open the wine...
