90 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, January 26 - Monday, January 29, 2007 Leftovers Continued from page 89 a familiar side dish into a main course, saut ham chunks until slightly browned and add to your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. Risotto is equally accom- modating to the addition of savory ham pieces and becomes a hearty one-pot entrde. Perk up a chicken pot pie by including chopped ham along with the chicken and vegetables. Or, let layers of ham slices bring new interest to your scalloped potatoes, as in the recipe below.

Joy was one (and the only woman) of 24 winemakers in Washington state in 1991. Today there are 170 wineries found in Washington. If you enjoy the Rosebud Medot, be sure to visit the website www.sno- to :check out their library wines. There are some nice verticals for sale. By the way, the 2004 Cab will age into 2012, so don't rush it. Next, let's look into anther 90- point buy, the Hogue Merlot Columbia Valley Genesis 2002. You regulars know I often recom- mend the Hogue Merlots. Since 1998, I think the least I have rated them was 88 points. The 2002 is just coming into its own, now through 20t2. It is a good, deep- purple wine with a pleasant fruit opening changing to currants and blueberries on the nose. The wine has a lengthy finish and blueberry flavors right to the end. The open- ing price was under $10. It is now found at $12-15. There were 10,000 cases produced, and as they dry up, the price will esca- late. Try to buy a case under $140. If you already have beaten the crowd, sit back another 2 years, then revisit them. Columbia Crest 2003 Merlot Grand Estate is another big win- Adult Plus+ to host Valentine dinner show Featuring great music, deli- cious food, and many musical favorites, the inaugural Valentine's Dinner Show is spon- sored by the Owens Campus Adult Plus+ program and promis- es a night of lively entertainment for attendees.

Plums, blackberries, currant and spice flavors follow this generous wine through a long, delicious fin- ish. Due to the large production, this product will probably hold its low price. While I'm on CC win- cry, its Horse Heaven Chardonnay Reserve 2004 is a gem.., and it is different. Spices, pears, coconut and apples on'the nose give way to delicious fruit and buttery flavors. This is a complex wine with a long, clean finish that has toasted oak and hJizelnut flavors flitting through.. You should be able to find it under $190/case. You will be happy you did, four years from now. Switching off to an Aussie, let's take a peek at Jacob's Creek Shiraz S. Australia Reserve 2003. This lovely can be had for >$10 per bottle if you buy it by the case. I think it may be one of this year's best picks. While it's currently rated at 91 points by everyone, I think it will improve. The issue is that they produced way too much of it. TO give you an idea, 61,000 cases were shipped to the U.S. alone.

Serve spread on smirCh- es, stuffed into tomatoes Or On let- tuce-'.leaves.  Note for a fmer tex- ture, chop the ham in :a-food processor. Serves 4 to 6. HAM AND POTATO CASSEROLE: 2Crank 1 garlic clove, pressed stewed tomato off-flavor, the Jacob's Creek rivals the best of the Greg Normans, in my opinion. As expected from the best of these, there is a big, fruity nose upon opening the bottle. The dark color and great legs coupled with the black cherry and spicy licorice in the nose tell us we are in for a big treat. The flavors don't disap- point. Plum fruit and mixed berry flavors are balanced with the proper use of oak and tannins. This is another Shiraz that would he a great buy at $20. How in the. heck do those Aussies produce, bottle, age and ship this quality for under $10? By the way, the Aussie minimum wage is $12.75 per hour, and the median age of a worker earning this rate is 32. N.B. - that says median, not aver- age. Finally; you know how I rarely miss a shot at MADD. The group's position 'on the drunk stop of a local pol really exposes its agenda, IMO. The event occurred in Ocean City, Md. The Ocean City police officer wrote in his report ,that the suspect was weav- ing and speeding and that he blew a .14 on the preliminary breath test. An acceptable level is less than .08. Yet, the police found no .fun to 7:ineJewe[00 First Street Station 70 Rehoboth Avenue (302) 227-3770 Rehoboth Beach, DE OPEN DAILY NEW 20650 7 Boisenberry Lane, Cinderberry Estates, 5 BR, 4 & BA Contemporary Home built " in 2005 Approx. 4,000 sq. ft.

Coat a baking dish or casserole with non- stick cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, gar- tic and seasonings.

The MADD crowd of Georgetown, after reviewing this information in the stop reports, sanctioned this release. You can bet your bippy that if 99 percent of you folks blew a .14, you would have MADD filing amicus curiae briefs to have you drawn and quartered even if you weren't weaving and speeding. A breath test of .14 is 75% over the lowest allowable reading. As I have writ- ten, for as long as this column has been in print, MADD is nothing but shrill shills for the lawyers and the huge business of drunk driv- ing. All the "drunk laws" are about raising money and nothing for remediation. I'm angry with MADD, and if you feel the same, send them a and sprinkle with flour. Repeat layering twice more. Pour milk mixture evenly over the casserole. Cover with foil and bake for one hour; remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes until top is golden and bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting; garnish with parsley. Serves 4. Denise Clemons holds a science degree from Vassar College and a masters in writing from Johns Hopkins.

My fight is with the political charla- tans who have co-opted that grief and turned it to their own machi- nations. I fail to see how paying an attor- ney $1,000 and the courts, drunk driving school and DMV another $1,500 and having their license suspended will correct most errant drivers, many of whom go through this cycle several times. A trained reporter would follow this story and delve into history. There is an interesting investigative arti- cle hidden away in this mess regarding the pol and a potential opponent.
