Pancetta and scallion bread.  

Yes.  It was fucking awesome.

A delicious meal at Sushi Ran!  I loved the octopus and beef carpaccio.  Tempura and crunch roll were also amazing!

Asparagus and spring pea bisque with grilled homemade sourdough garlic bread.  I swirled in creme fraiche as well.

A tasty meal at Don Pistos.  Chorizo and mussels along with lobster tacos.  Delicious!

Mom wanted croissants.  After her surgery, I made her breakfast in bed.  Freshly baked sourdough croissants with homemade blueberry jam.  No, I didn’t squeeze the OJ.  I know, I know…

I made a cinnamon bun out of the scraps and baked it in a ramekin.  It was also awesome.

This plus this equals this.  A two pot coq au vin.  Not quite game hens, but with 2 pound chickens.  

The marinaded veggies with the chicken were braised with it.  Normally I’d do the pretentious thumbelina carrots, pearl onions, braised pork belly crisped up, fresh wild mushrooms, but sometimes, mom just wants the home style cooking.  

Still, homemade pasta is hard to beat.  

Always remember, broil your braised skin-on meat!
