Speggatini with olio e aglio. Home made Tuscan style sausage I made with some great shoulder I bought on sale, and a mixed salad thingy with Oregano,Chianti venegar and some more of that olio.

I've had oxtails cooking away on the stove for an hr or two in red wine, canned tomatoes and beef stock. When they are close to tender I'll add some carrots, celery, mushrooms and pearl onions, and serve it over orzo pasta. It sure smells good in this house!!
All inspired by Luckycharm, with notions of my own.

I went to the Mexican market to get some $2.99 oxtails yesterday, and they were out.
However I found some really nice ones at Costco today for $3.99 per lb. The price there has come down! This is gonna be one goooooooood dinner!!
It's been a long time since I've enjoyed them, and it will be a first for my hubby. He's always game for anything I cook. What a pleasure.

PS I'm sorry you're sad Kathleen.....sending you a hug.

The only thing I do different for mine is barley, instead of Orzo. Hmmmm...
