Grilled chicken thighs; Brussels sprouts; rice – 18 January 2012

D defrosted a packet of four chicken thighs from Costco – wondering as he did why we got those with bones and skin (in a rush, first ones we found, didn’t look closely). He grilled these, salted and peppered, “for a long time” with rosemary under them after the initial searing.

The rosemary wasn’t obvious in the taste. He boiled up the rest of the Brussels sprouts from my pizza, including one I had separated into leaves and then packaged up in the fridge when it went unused. After boiling, he reheated the sprouts in butter, getting a rather crispy side on them. He added Thai jasmine rice to the meal, and opened a bottle of Chateau la Vernedre Coteaux do Languedoc from Grape Expectations. We liked it well enough, but at $8.95 (and no possible case discount from Vino) its competition is Chateau Saint-Souverain Cotex du Ventoux, which wins easily.
