10 minutes of prep work; 3.5 hours of braising on slow heat and a bit of praying..and the outcome?
Absolutely fantastic! As Tyler Florence's recipe suggested, I went back to the stove every 1/2 hour to baste. I was really hoping that this would be good, and it definitely surpassed my expectations! Most of the main ingredients were bought at Whole Foods. It's more expensive, but we feel it's important to eat organic so we try to do it as often as we can. I also threw in some potatoes to round out the dish & I used rosemary that I've been growing from an herb pot I keep at the back.

Though I was beyond stuffed, Mike also planned to take me to the newly opened Chocolate bar in the Village and of course, I obliged. I got an iced mocha & indulged in a piece of salty dark chocolate caramel. The caramel was not chewy at all and surprisingly soft. I didn't taste the salt too much though. I also bought a Dark Chocolate - Strawberry Jam graffiti bar for later.
Finally at home finishing up the night with my best friend, Sam... Life doesn't get any better than this (okay it does) but so far I feel great to be a year older.
