Have you been to Santa Barbara, California? It is a magical place. I hope to retire there one day. And yes, I know I am crazy for already thinking about retiring at age 30. What can I say, I’ve always been one to plan things way in advance.
Just a few miles Northeast of Santa Barbara is beautiful wine country and one of my favorite wineries – Lincourt. The winery was named after the owner’s two daughters, Lindsey and Courtney. How cute is that?! After a few trips, I decided I needed to join their wine club. Along with my wine shipments, they send a recipe featuring one of their club wines. This recipe is meant to be made using one of their Pinot Noirs. The sauce cooks low and slow, perfect for a lazy weekend dinner. I served it over cooked spaghetti squash so I could save the calories for more wine. Duh.
