January 9th, 2009 · 54 Comments

i present, a well grilled strip of grass-fed bison on a bed of steamed spinach with a sauté of caramelized red onions, golden raisins, granny smith apple and a splash of sherry vinegar. my version of a decadent dinner for the current ’09 regime… because, here’s the deal. ’08 was quite the interesting and wonderful food odyssey.

(if i’m going to whine, ice cream is the very least i can offer…) dear readers…  ceF is 2 days shy of turning one year old and well, i must tell you that as much fun as this is, in the short time that we’ve known each other i have recklessly and pitifully packed on some serious poundage. i have tried to be […]
