So, winter is basically here, and that means it is really cold pretty much every day. This is a major shock to the system, especially since we’ve only been back from Florida for four days, and when we left two weeks ago I could still run out to the grocery store in a t-shirt without getting side-eyed.
This also means that it is time to make as many warm, rustic, homey meals as humanly possible, because that’s just what you do when it’s dark when you wake up, and dark when you get home from work (said the stay at home mom). Osso Bucco is one of Bo’s favorites, and ridiculously enough, one that I hadn’t made since we moved into the house from the condo. Seeing as it’s insanely easy to make, I’m annoyed with myself too.
The recipe I use is straight out of Leiths Cookery Bible. There are a bunch of Leiths cookbooks out there, and I’m happy to say that I own most of them. This one though, the Cookery Bible, it was my first of the set, and it has never let me down. It is full of classic meals with straight forward and simple instructions. Everything that I have made from this book has turned out incredibly well, and I highly recommend it to everyone. Christmas is coming too, this is a good gift! Forget “The Joy of Cooking”, give this to someone moving out on they’re own and they’ll impress a lot more people in the kitchen. It’s not in print right now either, so get this one while you still can!
Ok, enough about the cookbook (but it really sucks that it’s getting hard to find). On to the actual recipe!
