business news in context, analysis with attitude

Had a wonderful red wine last night, a 2001 Red Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State - it was just incredibly smooth, easy-to-drink, and went great with a plate of spaghetti topped with Margaritaville Island Lime Shrimp (which, if you haven't had it, is a great safety net to have in the freezer, and is delightfully spicy and perfect with pasta or rice.

If you’re interested in getting a bottle or two, and your local wine merchant doesn't have it, try our guy:

We have another gastronomic recommendation for you…a little something we stumbled on recently, but that was just amazing.

There's a little company called Southern Ray's that makes a wonderful line of barbecue sauces and marinades - just great. We've used the sauces on a wide variety of ribs and meats, and love them - but our favorite has to be when we put the company’s Fat Free - Apple & Wine Marinade in a large pan, and then put in a bunch of Aidell's Chicken and Apple sausages. Cooked them on low for about an hour…the smell was delightful, the taste was fantastic.

We should note that none of these companies are sponsors of MNB…we just happen to think they make terrific products that taste great…and worthy of your support. (Besides, we're all looking for products and recipes that'll differentiate our companies. It’s our pleasure to do what we can.)
