I am not sure there is anything that tastes as wonderful as Osso Bucco, the day after!  We went to an Italian restaurant, yesterday, to celebrate Sophie's being in town, and I ordered OB, in honor of Herb (who would have turned 90 on Saturday, October 13th).  It was really good.  But not as good as it is today!

Fresh baked bread

Over the weekend I decided I was so inspired by the fabulous food and baked goods (thank you Betsy!) that I would bake bread.  The first batch, not so good, but the second and third....delicious! I had forgotten what a joy it is to bake bread, from start to finish; the mixing of ingredients, the kneading of the bread, and the SMELL, or that smell, enough to bring anyone in from the street.  But there is nothing to compare to the actual taste of fresh baked bread (add a little cheese and wine) and what more does one need to live on?!
