Pulse Drinking: A by Acacia Pinot Noir makes for nice and easy sipping


Here we go, pinot! Here we go! A by Acacia Pinot Noir has got me doing the chant. Normally priced at $21.99, this Carneros, Calif., beauty is now listed at $10.99 for the next several months. The Acacia name caught my eye as it was always a favorite stop when I was in the Napa area, before they sold to Peju. It’s now called Liana Estates, named after sisters Lisa and Ariana Peju. Flavors of black cherry and strawberry cream keep me going back for another sip. I had it with a pizza margarita topped with arugula. It’s another candidate for a six bottle purchase for sure (10 percent discount!). Nice and easy drinking.

While we were shopping at Costco the other day, I spotted a very neat and attractive eye round, cut in two pieces, and at a very reasonable price. The idea of making seekh kabab out of it immediately came to mind. Seekh kabab is made out of long and thin strips of meat marinated and threaded on a skewer. There are two ways you can get those long and...
