It's Christmas time in the city.
I had the os à moelle, a bistro classic, roasted veal shin with bone marrow, served with coarse salt & thick toast.
I just Googled & discovered that bone marrow is protein-rich & high in monounsaturated fats.] Ha! It's heartening -- pardon the pun -- to know that this greasy, succulent comfort food is actually decreasing my LDL cholesterol levels & reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease! (Mostly, though, I love it because it looks for all the world like you're eating the bone of a cocker spaniel.)
I kinda like the continuity of that.
