Happy Easter Sunday!


This is a pretty belated post, but I didn't want to forego posting about our Easter dinner since it was inspired by my Slow Travel compadre Jane.

Several mentions had been made about Jane's recipe for Osso Bucco, so I found her blog post and printed it out.

Bill went to a high-end market in the desert and got the veal shanks (already tied), so I was all-set. They braised for most of the day, and our kitchen smelled wonderful! I had asked Bill what he wanted to accompany the Osso Bucco, and he chose mashed potatoes! Go figure! He could have had risotto or polenta or ???, but he chose mashed potatoes.

Actually, it was a good match, along with roasted green and white asparagus.


Can't forget the wine! I belong to a wine club in Paso Robles called Denner, and they make a wine they call Ditch Digger. It is a BIG wine and ready to stand up to the Osso Bucco flavors. Yum!

Thank you, Jane! It was a wonderful dinner! And a belated Happy Easter to everyone!

Nancy, so glad it was a hit and your picture is delicious. I think I must make it again soon except it is to expensive! I usually try to make enough for two meals as it is wonderful the second day and is too much work for just one meal. It is yummy!
