Lasagne and Shiraz - a match made in heaven

Food

There are a few, very different, lasagne recipes that I love, and Theresa's is one of the best. Crisp, tasty, cheesy. Yum.

Wine

Loving this Barossa Shiraz - Six Gates 2006, "The Majnun". The problem with Get Wines Direct is that you never know why they're selling a wine. It could be a promo, a failed export, or just an outright crap wine. This one was a $10 promo, available elsewhere for $15-20+. On tasting, I liked it enough to buy 2 bottles, but on opening the first bottle, I want more. Oh well, just ned to keep looking out for other specials - apparently "they" say variety is the spice of life...

EDIT - 20080812:
I got lucky and spotted the last dregs of the Six Gates Shiraz in the bargain bin and snapped up four more bottles. Yay!
