Just because you don't have a lot of time to fuss in the kitchen doesn't mean you can't enjoy a fully satisfying meal at home, complete with wine. Try these combos.
Bistro at Home
A simple roasted chicken is a French bistro standby. Grab a rotisserie chicken at the Publix Deli, then keep the bistro theme going with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, or Syrah. These wines are popular in France and friendly to roasted chicken.
Italian Night In
With your favorite marinara sauce on the shelf and some meatballs in the freezer, you can have a cozy little spaghetti-and-meatball dinner on the table in minutes. Spread out the red-and-white checked tablecloth, light some candles, and pour an Italian Chianti or a California Sangiovese.
Comforts of Home
When you're ready for a hearty, meaty and robust entree, try the Mom’s Meatloaf recipe from Aprons Simple Meals. A full-flavored Merlot or red Zinfandel is the perfect choice with this style of comfort food.
Ham in a Hurry
One of the easiest meals in the world starts with a few thick slices of good-quality smoked ham. Serve it along with a fruit salad to brighten up dinner. Enjoy an equally bright chilled dry rosé wine with this combo.
