We're back from MarsCon 2011, and playing catch-up with two weeks of dinners. So, we've got Blue Horizon Natural Pasta, Lundberg Garlic Primavera Rissoto, Mrs. T's Saurkraut Perogies, and Kerala Curry Vegtable Kurma Sauce. Add into that three new items cooked on the spot - Jamaican Style Mild Beef Patties, Thai Pavilion Thai Peanut, and Kimba BBQ Pork Buns.
Add to that a bottle of Snap Dragon Carbernet Sauvignon (and a little listener mail) and it's another week where we eat it so you don't have to.
Clarification: it's usually $6-7 here in Indianapolis. No idea of its availability or price out-of-state, but if you see it, definitely try it out. Personal favorites are their Soft Red or Soft White, and their Camelot Mead.
For really good, cheap wine, check out Oliver. It's a Bloomington, IN winery so it's sort-of local to Indy, which means it's usually $6-7, and basically everything they make is really good.
We have a saying in Vermont. "Maple syrup in Vermont is like moonshine in the south, you don't buy it in a store. You buy it from your cousin, or your barber, or out of the trunk of some sketchy guy's car."
Having never lived in the south, I cannot attest as to how a native thereof would acquire moonshine. However, it is true that really good syrup is never sold in stores.

I *always* choose wine by the lable. The funkier/weirder/more unusual the lable; the more likely I am to buy it. So there.
