Instead my mind is wandering off to memories of the Elote appetizer from the Cafe Elote in Sedona, the chicken enchiladas mole from Rosita's Place in Phoenix or the Buffalo Filet Mignon from the El Tovar.
Nope, osso bucco is definitely not on my brain. Fortunately, it is on my hard drive...
Rice is the recommended accompaniment - although, we paired this with mustard and Parmesan crusted roast potatoes and buttermilk biscuits. (I can't help it - I am a total sucker for a good roasted potato.)

Since I had a special request for book recommendations, here a few of my most recent reads. Juliet Grey's Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow is a fictional take on the life of Marie Antoinette - this one had me Google-ing Marie Antoinette hairstyles more than once (Google "Marie Antoinette hair ship" for one of my favorites...). Holly Chamberlin's The Beach Quilt depicts the journey of a teenaged girl and her best friend - the ending was not what I expected, but no spoilers will be given here. Gwenda Bond's Girl on a Wire is currently in my queue - this is a tale of young love in a circus setting.

Happy Halloween, all! Whether you spend your evening flinging candy to the throngs of children or spend the evening hiding behind pulled shades and darkened lamps (not that I have ever done that) or celebrate in some other way - I hope you have a safe and enjoyable evening.
This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie. A posted version of this osso bucco recipe can be found here.
