Thanksgiving, pt. 3

I am really looking foward to the Holiday season this year. Even with the economic downturn I’m in good spirits. Things started off well with a uneventful Halloween spent with my children, a epic November 4th, and better days ahead: from Thanksgiving through MLK weekend and culminating with Inauguration Day. I’m even excited about the President’s Holiday. Flag Day even has a new meaning. I’m proud to be an African-American during these historic times and I am hopeful for the future. And President-elect Obama, if you need someone to run the White House wine cabinet (cellar), I’m available and thirsty.

…pt. 3 is a link to a story written in last years San Francisco Chronicle. It is an article written by a staff writer for the Food section about our families un-traditional Thanksgiving.

  1. I was reading your article on the S.F. Chronicle about crab feast. thats great because last weekend my hubby and I had our own crab feast. And I pair the crab with a Albarino wine from Spain. You can find this wine at Trader Joes for under $15 bucks. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!

  2. I’m glad you mentioned Albarino. It’s a great under-appreciated wine that goes well with seafood. I like the Nessa Albarino 2007. I buy it from a Bay Area wine shop, The Wine Club, for $10/bottle. We usually pair the Albarino with kumomoto oysters as an appetizer. It will be my post for December.

    For Dungeness crab, I like a Chardonnay. I’m a big fan of Chateau St. Jean Robert Young Vineyard 2006. Available at Costco for $21.

    Have a good Thanksgiving, Angela. And let me know what wines you’re serving for Thanksgiving…I’m always looking for new food/wine ideas.
