About once every quarter She and I try to bring the bods back to square one by doing our own little detox diet - basically gluten-free, pescatarian, no preservatives... Unfortunately an impending diet for us means going all out up until that point. As it turned out, Lobster Ravioli from fresh pasta sheets was on our bill for the evening.

|Rabbit Stew with Rosemary Polenta Cakes|
So sometimes she cooks too….with mucho help from him of course. He kinda guides her along but lets her drive at the same time, and last nite was one of these times. The kitchen was filled with the smells of rabbit stew. An homage to her Nonna and rustic Italian cooking (she can recall stories told by her mother of her PaPaw going out in the yard and shooting a rabbit for dinner) they decided to give it a whirl.

One hot, gooey mess for mankind...
So I was at the local grocer today, wandering about the produce section, when I came upon the onions. Now QVC isn't my thing, but if you throw me into the produce section with some deals, I become more impulsive than a kid in a candy store. Last week I left with 20 lbs. of sweet potatoes after spotting they were 10¢ per pound - I could have left with a cart-full if it wouldn't offer She credit to my delusions. Needless to say, yesterday I spotted yellow onions for 29¢ a pound - seemed like enough reason to tote out a couple armfuls!

|Pushed the ugly sweet potato into the background...|
So yeah, She and I never eat red meat... never...
She decided otherwise earlier today during brunch - during her not-so-hot salmon benny. Simply put, She and I had ourselves a nice Strip au Poivre with some goodies in a sherry cream sauce. With a truckload of sweet potatoes on hand, we also had a couple of sweet bakers with mascarpone when a little twist popped up. One of our sweet potatoes stood out like a red-headed stepchild - I just wish the Big Box could've slipped us a purple varietal instead of stripping me of my beta carotene...
