Color Of Food

Don't you just love this color? It's alive and beautiful, and I simply had to show it to you.

Red, yellow, and orange sweet peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, black beans, red kidney beans, spices, fresh green basil, grilled chicken breasts... all wonderful components of a great Chicken Chili.

I'm prepping for tonight's dinner and friends who will be joining us.

Appetizer: a very simple cheese and jalapeno quesadilla with a freshly made guacamole and accompanied by a Navarro '06 Sauvignon Blanc... 6 people, a walk in the garden and the next cork to pop, a King Estate '05 Pinot Gris ... chicken chili, our fresh garden greens with just a smidgen of a raspberry vinaigrette dressing... and dinner outside in the gazebo.

Simple and colorful dinner, great friends, and I'm pumped.
