Dinner, Dessert, and 2 Types of Wine... My kind of Friday Night

Kerry made dinner. It was awesome. I got to help out too.

First we sautéed up some chicken tenderloins. Along with the chicken we threw in some garlic and onions.

While that was cooking we cooked up some tri-colored (red, orange, yellow) bell peppers and made some angel hair pasta.

After mixing some sauce into the pasta (Paul Newman Sakarooni) we put the whole thing together. Pasta with Chicken on top and garnished with the peppers. For good measure we topped it off with some freshly grated parmesan cheese.

It tasted even better than it looks. We had a glass of red wine with it. The wine was Spanish. We discovered it last week at a tasting at Clever Wines up in Mid-City.

As fantastic as the dinner was, the highlight of the meal had to be desert. Kerry made these little mascarpone stuffed dates with honey on top.

I had never had dates before, especially not any with mascarpone and honey in them. They were so good. They sat in the refrigerated for about an hour while we ate dinner and got cold.

Just to keep with the wine theme we opened a bottle of chardonnay and had a glass with them. So far I think they are the tastiest thing featured on this blog. And the good news is I have the making of about 100 more in my fridge right now.

It was a great dinner though. The bar is set pretty high for my next dinner.
