Two months ago I got my life back...literally. My first completely free weekend in months and the weather could not have been more perfect. Raul and I had a most amazing Saturday eating and drinking at the Getty. Oh wait...they have art there? Yeah, we didn't see any of it that day. We began with beautiful salads of mixed greens, portabellos, balsamic vinegarette and bacon. Mmmm...bacon. Of course we washed this down with a bottle of wine, followed by another bottle - and a brownie. After our "decadent" lunch we sat on the lawn and read and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Eventually we had to return to the "real world" - drunk cooking our Easter feast. Raul made the most amazing deep fried mac and cheese. Unfortunately for him, I wouldn't stop eating the bacon. For my contribution I made shrimp salad in endive leaves (crab is super expensive) and espresso chocoalate mousse. God bless Giada!!
