Prosecco Picnic Royale

Getting home a bit earlier today than my usual 8:00 pm, put me in a mood for something different. Why not a quick picnic, at Tod's Point (aka Greenwich Point Park), in Greenwich CT ?  Fifteen minutes of preparation time, and here's what we got to enjoy.



Picnic Menu
Italian Prosecco  - Zardetto
Bagel Breads - (Brooklyn Breads , Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn NY)
Calabrian Wild Mushrooms - in EVOO  (Cosmo and Alex Pisano , Mamaroneck NY)
Multi-Grain Bread (origin: Tarry Market , Port Chester NY)
Aged Beemster - XO from Holland  (Tarry Market, Port Chester, NY)
Aged NY Extra Sharp Cheddar
Fresh Tomato Salad.

What made this special, besides the sexy stormy atmosphere on the horizon, were the uncommon bagel breads that I picked up in Brooklyn earlier in the day , and the fresh tomatoes that my garden yielded.

Wink Wink, happy to report that the Queen  was delighted by my surprise!

Bon Appétit

My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy

Here are some plays on Paella


This was made with Brown Rice, Very different way to cook.  Grouper Filet , who would have thought, was made part of the recipe.
