I woke up on Monday morning and my horoscope told me in no uncertain terms that I was to "stick to the basics" this week. It went on to say that the success of my week would be determined by people who "rely upon me for my method of doing things".

Ossobuco seemed like the natural progression after that. One needs veal stock to make it, and, who doesn't love a perfectly braised veal shank... w/gremolada too?
Just to secure my culinary position with "the stars", I posted my recipe for spicy saffron rice, pignoli & pea stuffed tomatoes, which are a great side dish to the meal:

Well, that's it for this Food for Thursday. Next week: St. Patrick's Day!
For the glory,
