The Dinner of Champions!
What is with this weather? It is raining again, for the third freaking Friday in a row! It’s not supposed to be this way in San Diego. After my dinner plans got washed away with the rain, I didn’t feel like cooking and couldn’t think of takeout that sounded tempting. So, I headed home, where I knew I had the makings of a decadent dinner: champagne and potato chips. I sipped a baby bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut with natural Kettle chips and homemade ranch dip. It may sound funny, but it’s really not all that different from drinking a soda with chips. The bubbles and the acidity help balance the grease, making for a very pleasant sensation. Plus, it feels sooo luxurious in a slightly trashy way. After a while, I forgot all about the rain.
