I'm envious, now.

Yes, Casey, browned and braised in a CI dutch oven is the way to go and you are so right, they are so tender with a long braise. Those wonderful little browned bits and pan drippin's are so good so I always make a gravy. Unfortunately, I have yet to see short ribs on the managers specials.

I was starving this afternoon and it's cloudy today so the natural lighting was bad, but here's a pic from a couple of months ago. YUM

The restaurant has been around forever, although the salad is no longer served. I had the salad the night before DD was born and she hit 40 this year, and I'd been to the restaurant for a couple of years before that. She wasn't due for almost another month, but I was huge and the hostess seating us made a crack about sitting me somewhere with easy exit access just in case. She didn't know how right she was.
That looks like my kind of salad, med! And I loved the story that went along with it.

Thanks for the photo -- now I am even more envious.

We had breakfast for supper - individual 3-egg omelets. 3 eggs because each omelet had so many veggies it wouldn't stay together with two! Himself had lots of red onion and mushrooms, topped with American cheese. My omelet was stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, and grape tomatoes, topped with Jarlsberg cheese. We each had some T-day ham, and butter-Bourbon sauteed apples. I also had half of my jumbo muffin from breakfast. I made box mix pumpkin muffins, but jazzed them up with lots of raisins and walnuts.

Wow! I don't imagine you will need any late night snacks after that meal. Sounds excellent. But, that's a lot of food.

I had my book club meeting tonight. I made meatballs and mixed them with a spicy barbecue sauce. The hostess made mac 'n cheese, so they went well together.
