'Fabulous Favorites Festival' today: This month Wine Blogging Wednesday takes place on a Friday

Unfortunately this week has been quite hectic for me and I will not have the chance or should I say time to contribute to Wine Blogging Wednesday #21. Breaking all the rules, this month it takes place on a Friday and is brought to you by Alberto of Is My Blog Burning and Lenn of Lenndevours under the 'Fabulous Favorites' banner. The theme this month is cook a dish and pick a wine from your cellar that matches it or if you are really ambitious design a whole food and wine pairing dinner.
Had I taken part, I would have offered a dish I used to make quite often when I lived in France. Pruneaux It was Roast Beef with Pruneaux d'Agen and Carrots with a red wine sauce. I would have paired it with a Cote Rotie (Rhone) wine.
My advice is keep an eye next week on either Is My Blog Burning or LennDevours for the wrap up.

One of the reviewers is Amy Krouse Rosenthal whose Encyclopedia of Ordinary Life I still have to read. The people of Aesthetic Apparatus are designing a limited edition poster to...
