Sunday Night Dinner 2/28/2010

After a whirlwind of a month, not to even mention just the last week, Jason and I found ourselves relieved to have a Sunday afternoon and evening together.  We split our new favorite sandwich, the Loaded Veggie Burger at Rocking Horse for lunch and then walked over to the Dill Pickle Co-op to load up on supplies for a nice, big Sunday night dinner that would provide us with leftovers for the week as well.

For the vegetable sides I made my Kale and Red Cabbage Gratin, and roasted carrots with tarragon.

We made a lentil with red wine and herb dish from this month's Food & Wine and served it with a mustard and black peppercorn crusted pork tenderloin.

All of the dishes complimented eachother perfectly and the lentils were a surprise hit!  The cilantro added a brightness I never would have imagined.  We each ate less than 3 oz of meat, but were fully satisfied with the addition of all of the vegetarian sides.

To top it off we served the meal with a 2005 Chateau Poitevin Medoc, a 50% merlot, 45% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc blend.  We had a bottle of this wine about a year ago and were very pleased with how it had aged since then.  It's been awhile since I've had an actual Bordeaux and it paired wonderfully with the entire meal.
