Hello my lovelies!
It has been a very long time since I posted anything, and I really do apologize.
I would love to tell you that the butcher and I have been travelling the world, and there simply hasn't been any time, but that is not the case.
In fact, we've been apart in 2011 more than we've been together. I have been travelling (only within Canada, sigh...).
And that, I can tell you, is not a source of much joy! However, it does mean that when I am home we indulge perhaps a little more than we should...
One of these instances would be when we invited a couple of friends over, and we had wine, they brought wine...in short, it was a night to remember (albeit somewhat hazily...).
In any case, we started the night with just some nibbles on the table for everyone to pick at...
Some of the butcher's favorites were in the mix:
A nice salami, some locally-made sausage - one brined in dark beer, the other with blue cheese in it.
Mozzarella di Buffala with a good olive oil and an aged balsamic.
And of course...
Prosciutto di Parma
Oh, there was more! Much more but, I will save the rest for another post. I think for now you're all as full as we were after just this portion of the feast!
Coming up, the best chicken wings you'll ever eat and a dessert pizza- yes, it's a dessert and it is DEEEElicious.
