Tonight's menu: Osso Buco. Why not? A full report on that coming tomorrow morning.
In the meantime, I put together the chocolate bread pudding recipe recommended by Freya. It was easy enough: cut up bread, melt other ingredients in a double boiler and layer everything in baking dish. The recipe requires it sitting in the refrigerator for 48 hours before baking, so Friday night's dessert is sitting, waiting for its 15 minutes of fame. I feel good about this one, but only time will tell...and the eggs.
