Baked Sausage: pork sausage, fennel/carrots/potatoes/pimentos, crusty ciabatta…vino!

Lobster Monster Roll at Lemongrass Bistro (one of my 2 favorite decadent foods; the other is Salade Royale of fois gras, prawns and other over-the-top delicacies
at a waterfront restaurant in Cannes).

Somewhere along the way I had a brilliant(?) idea to create a collection of B&W with 1-color added (a nifty feature, I thought, that my camera offered). Interesting? Crazy? Perhaps, this should have been relegated to the trash. Looks like science lab gone wrong, very wrong.

Spinach Spaghetti with Scallops and fresh tomatoes.
Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps: ground pork, Asian spices, chow mein noodles.
Spicy, but in a good way.
