If you like to play with your food, you will love playing with your bubbly beverages. Scatter a tablespoon of fresh pomegranate seeds over the bottom of a flute or wineglass, gently add Prosecco or champagne to fill, and wait! there they go! Bubbles attach to the seeds and float them to the top, detach and let the seeds descend to the bottom again. Over and over the pomegranate seeds bounce up and down, up and down... Is it magic? it's certainly fun to watch the action as you sip the beverage. Does this work with a classic champagne cocktail or bellini? Hmmmm, I don't know but definitely need to investigate this, all in the name of research of course. Thank you friend Cathy S., for introducing me to this captivating occurrence.
Now about that Thanksgiving menu report I mentioned last week: plans changed. The Thursday menu was completely ignored as flight attendant H was called out to work all day and Grandma's plane arrived so late in the evening that she just wanted to go to bed. Postpone that menu until later in the week, and reorganize the refrigerator. On Friday we ate appetizers and green salad from the Thursday menu, opted to skip the potatoes, and were too full for any dessert... except H's decorated cookies. Okay, I confess we nibbled on a lot of cookies. Hot turkey sandwiches, cold turkey sandwiches and turkey quesadillas took care of the leftovers on Saturday and Sunday. Grandma flew home, the fridge is empty and it's time to think about December activities. Let's start with some bubbly.
