What Carol had for dinner on October 6, 1997

I was experimenting last night for a dinner party we're going to have for this couple we met at the Mendocino Wine Auction. I decided to try a Coq au Vin recipe from the Dean and Deluca cookbook. So last night I practiced making that. It was fantastic, but there wasn't enough sauce...maybe I reduced it too much. I don't think I'm going to make it for the party though. It was too much work. For over two hours I was standing and chopping and fixing...that was before it got in the oven! I was exhausted. So I'm going to try something else. I don't know. It was really good....
