Making Osso Bucco with an onion and red wine reduction, takes a few hours to cook.

On the back burner ('member him from the other board years ago) there is the beginnings of a veggie pasta sauce with 4 different types of mushrooms, peppers, etc etc etc, that needs to sit overnight

Damn, haven't even opened a bevy yet.

This proves something I have long believed; that no matter how bad you feel, a little pussy will help make it better. :lol:

I just had the funniest experience at a little cafe downtown...

I had some running around to do this afternoon, and left the house, not realizing the Red bull and grapes that I had for breakfast would wear off that fast.

After I went to the bank, I was thinking how hungry I was, and passed this little cafe that was on the way to my car. I had never been in there before.

There was a sign with the specials on it outside, but I barely glanced at it. I went inside, and looked around. The cafe was filled with tables for two, but on every table there seemed to be cakes in various levels of decoration, from still cooling to fully decorated. I looked for someone to serve me, and there was only one older lady, possibly older than 60 who was limping around.

There were no menu signs in the cafe, nor was there a menu offered to me...the only sign read "FOOD OPTIONS: Take it or Leave it."
lol

The lady had the thickest accent, I could barely understand her. I told her I was starving and asked her what she could do for me. She pointed to something "blah blah blah", pointed to something else "blah blah blah" (I could not understand her for the life of me!) Then, she said she had two pieces of fish left, I understood that, so I said that would be fine.

She said, "Salad?" I said that would be nice...she asked about dressing. When I asked her what she had available, out of the four options she gave me the only thing I understood was "sundried tomato", so I took that! lol THEN she asked me what I wanted with my fish, I said "Surprise me!", because I was sure I wouldn't be able to understand the options anyways.

I should say here that I cleaned off my own table so I could sit down! I had to find a new home for the cake that adorned my table.

So, the salad came, and it was fairly plain: romaine lettuce with cucumbers and tomato. Except the dressing...THE DRESSING! omg, amazing. It was a homemade dressing, and she could have put it on cardboard and it would have tasted amazing. I am not sure what kind of base she used, possibly yogurt. Garnished with a huge piece of watermelon, which I ate.

Then the fish came. Two large pieces of poached trout, done with herbs and a massive slice of lemon. The rice on the plate was molded into a thin rectangle (not scooped) with the edges browned and looked kind of sketchy.

I was pleased when I tried the rice, it tasted like garlic and needed no seasoning whatsoever. I am sure it had been baked with butter. The fish was perfectly done, and flavorful without too much spice; a perfect compliment to the rice.

All told, I ate every morsel...and despite my apprehension, it was an amazing meal. I went to pay, and it ran me a whole 10.95.

I'm looking forward to next time I go into her cafe and ask her to surprise me. Worth it even if I have to move a cake or two to get a table to sit down at.

Penne - al dente, not al dentist ;) - with fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden, boccoccini from the Cheese Boutique, salt, pepper, olive oil, and a whisper of sherry vinegar.

Defying the no-carbs dogma, I even had some baguette to lap all the juices left over from the pasta water, olive oil, and tomatoes.

Perrier for drink.

Burgers and Guinness.

The secret is paprika and to use two different cheeses, one on each side of the patty
(tonight was Cheddar and Roquefort but any two as long as they are different and compliment each other, sort of like a threesome two different cheeses and some meat in the middle)

Tonight I had a stuffed chicken breast (goats cheese, lemon zest and oregano) wrapped in prosciutto and grilled on the BBQ. Corn on the cob and baby romaine and red pepper salad with a simple vinaigrette. So fresh, and so good!

btw, oddball, before you ask: It was not me doing the cooking. :)
