After many vet visits to our regular vet, trying to identify why his skin was bumpy, we took Bruno to a veterinarian dermitologist. Apparently, Bruno is allergic to chicken. He's now on a blend of venison and potato dry food...which he LOVES! What we didn't know, is that most dog foods, especially the high-end brands, contain chicken. We went from Iams to Canadae's, all to find out the chicken is the culprit. No more poultry for this boy!

Luke received the new Mario Batalli cook book for his birthday. I think I lucked out more with this present! When I walked in the door Friday night, I was greeted with the aroma of braised Lamb shanks and eggplants simmering in olive oil. Luke suprised me with a fabulous dinner, all thanks to Mario. Eggplant bruschetta, sauteed oyster mushrooms over fresh spaghetti and arugla, and lamb shanks with olives and oranges. The wine: we started with a Chianti Classico with the bruschetta and pasta secondi. For the main course: a Lytton Springs Zinfandel was the perfect accompaniment. Just the right amount of pepper and fruit! It's our wine pick of the week! Find it, try it!
