The Dinner of Champions & Cameron Hughes Lot 72

This was dinner the other night at Chez Vinagoth, waffles and red wine. You see Mrs. Barbarian had failed to stop by the grocery store or Costco as promised, so when it came time to cook something up the pickings were slim. I punted and got out the waffle iron. Think of it as a Belgian delicacy!

Thankfully the wine cellar offered up this wonderful 2005 Napa Valley Meritage from Cameron Hughes. It was more than a match for this tasty treat from the Low Countries, and a bargain at $12. Next time I hope to try it with a proper dinner. At least Mrs. Barbarian doesn’t slather her steaks in peanut butter(!) like she does her waffles. Sigh.
