So what do you do with a little bit of leftover red wine? You could drink it. Or you make Red Wine Glazed Mushrooms and Potatoes. Both seem like perfectly reasonable choices to me – but if you’re hungry than one is for sure a better option than the other.
So, after you make yourself some mushrooms and potatoes, then you should pour yourself a glass and cozy on up to watch some Friday Night Lights. That is exactly what I did this weekend. And here’s the thing – I’ve never seen Friday Night Lights until now. And holy moly is it addicting. I mean where the heck was I when it was on? I’ve powered through season 1 and now I’m halfway through season 2 and I’m hooked. 100% obsessed. I can’t even handle it. I need more hours in the day so I can get all my work done and watch at least 4 hours of FNL. Do you guys watch it? Thank goodness I’ve got a few flights coming up so I can watch marathons sessions.
I’ve recently teamed up with the fab folks over at Barefoot Wine + Bubbly to do a little bit of cooking with their wines! I mean, it’s a tough job, but someones gotta do it!
First up was this Red Wine Glazed Mushrooms and Potatoes side dish. It’s kinda the perfect thing for this time of year. The mushrooms are slowly cooked so their flavors really shine and then they are mixed with some potatoes and then doused with some Cab Sav. I cook the wine down for a bit so it basically turns into a thick creamy glaze and then dust the whole thing with fresh chives for a pop of color. It’s an easy side dish, that’s for sure, but it’s a crowd pleaser. Especially if you’re as addicted to mushrooms as me!
