Easter Dinner Menu / Bottling Wine

I bottled about two cases of the home-made zinfandel this morning.

I took some time this morning to bottle more of the ’09 vintage. The grapes were a little sweeter this year and so the wine is a little stronger than last year’s award winner.

I now have plenty of home-made wine to serve at Easter dinner. This year’s feast includes the usual suspects:

Appetizers:

  • Bloody Marys (with garnishes of shrimp, pepperoni & cheese, celery)
  • Shrimp Cocktail
  • Potato Chips with French Onion Dip

First Course:

Main Course

Dessert:

Vino:

  • ’08 Award-winning Zinfandel from the RootsLiving Wine Cellar
  • ’09 Zinfandel, freshly bottled from the RootsLiving Wine Cellar

Sorry, but there’s no time to post recipes for all this. I’ll be cooking from now till Easter Sunday. (But I’ll be sure to post recipes next week.)
