using up the wine

Lately, Dolly's been wanting to go into the lower cupboards; she went onto a shelf where a few bottles of wine are kept, which reminded me that they need to be used, so I opened one.

Yesterday I defrosted a couple of Cornish hens and found a nice recipe which called for wine - well, white wine, but I had red to use up and that's what I used. It was delicious! Now, for the rest of the bottle. Maybe I'll make this cake and stick it in the freezer.


  1. oh how fun! I love trying new recipes! :)

  2. Maybe you could try drinking some :)) xx

    1. Lynda. :D :D Now that I'm done laughing - (I'm not really done laughing), I just don't like the way I feel when I drink alcohol. But it's so obvious, it's hilarious.

  3. I added that to my bookmarks with "January 27" as one of the tags!! It sounds like a good one for a winter day, for sure.

    Or a summer's day! I was relieved to see that the Chocolate Cake Day wasn't *June* 27 or I'd have wanted to add it to my list of things to do this month, which is already packed. :-) Thanks for sharing!

  4. How kind of Dolly to go through your cupboards and remind you to sort them out! I remember the chocolate cake made with wine. We often put a little drop of wine into casseroles, stews and gravy as it adds a richness to the flavour. I don't drink and Richard prefers beer and spirits so we often have half finished bottles to use up.
