Well, if you missed it last week, I introduced you to my Grandpa with his thoughts on baseball.

This week we're talking the key to a good meal...and I realize that my status as the Point's Resident Lush may have something to do with the genes!

I was able to capture this conversation for all of you to hear, but there are some basic things to take with you.

The key to a good meal?

Usually something simple is better than something fancy. You don't wanna make a gourmet meal -- sometimes it don't come out right, you might not have the right ingredients and all that."

When it comes to seasoning?

I usually use garlic.  I use, on occasion, turmeric...cayenne pepper is what I use. I don't use black pepper."

When I asked him about wine?

Well that's a must."

Amen, Grandpa. Amen.

Listen in and you'll find out how he throws together a quick dinner and get his recipe for drunken cherries. (I highly recommend them on some vanilla ice cream.)
