The Easter Squirrel Cometh


(If you are reading this on an RSS feed, click through to see the slideshow.)
It’s Easter time, and the family came for a feast, Squirrel-style. Mama Squirrel brought a bounty back from Chino Farms near San Diego. We used the Chino produce along with some beautiful lamb chops from Jerusalem Market and top-notch ingredients from Fresh Market and Wild Oats to put on quite a spread.

    Thanks for the kind words. We enjoy the plating almost as much as we do the cooking. Whenever a big meal is coming up we find ourselves drawn to the Williams Sonoma outlet just in case we need more plates.
