A Great Fall Weekend...

We had a really nice Fall weekend full 
of fall colors and delicious home cooked 
meals shared with friends.  

For dinner Saturday night, 
I braised turkey drumsticks--in an Osso Bucco style-- 
served over Parmesan Polenta...on the side, we had
grilled Radicchio, that we topped with gorgonzola and a balsamic reduction.

The turkey was garnished with a pine nut gremolata with lemon zest--
which helps to brighten flavors.

Really, this was one of the best meals I have made...EVER!

Collection of wonderful recipes here.

I also brought a little bit of fall foliage inside--which is always fun and dramatic...
I sent Greg out to poach this branch for me...

 It was also Magda's last soccer game--she played awesomely!
(She looked good too...)

Great team work!  Go Girls!!

Number 7 in action with her fancy footwork...she is good!
It was a gorgeous day, the girls won their game 
and finished the season with cake.

I love this time of year.

  1. Your Saturday night dinner sounds heavenly! I adore radicchio, and polenta even more! I haven't had polenta in years! This is totally making me crave some !
