Magic ingredients: fennel and leeks
While this plate may not make the prettiest food photo you ever saw, trust me when I say that the meal was delicious.
It's just store-bought ravioli -- shrimp and crab, in this case -- with a sauce made of sauteed mushrooms and diced fennel, along with a very few other ingredients. For our veggie side, I sauteed diced leeks with sliced Brussels sprouts.
I've found that leeks and fennel (or both in one dish) deepen and complicate the flavors of almost any savory dish.
Give them a try!
Bistro Grace has opened on Hamilton Avenue in the spot where Honey used to be. Here is the five-spice duck breast, quite tasty. Click on photo to visit the website. More to come on this welcome restaurant.
It's not ALL bad to have passed 60, but for the most part, it sucks. I hope not to rant and complain the entire time, but instead will make this a blog about the ups and (mostly) downs of encroaching old age. I'm still working, by the way, as a college prof at the University of Cincinnati. My other blog, www.healthyfoodies.blogspot.com, is about healthy eating.
