It was almost two years ago that we finished a renovation and despite having a great general contractor and a wonderful architect, I am only able to write about it now. I manged to talk about it plenty and to those who had to listen to it – many thanks for your patience. Home Renovation is a vortex (like the wedding vortex) and you are helpless to resist the pull of the minutiae. Really, backsplashes, countertops, fixtures, drawer pulls, hooks – I obsessed over hooks that I barely notice today – but that is past me now and I am ready to obsess over something else. Maybe food, that’s always a good choice. I finally got another copy of the most gorgeous lamb shank recipe ever. It is from the restaurant Bha! Bha! http://www.bhabhapersianbistro.com/ in Naples Florida and it is amazingly delicious and it took me two days to make it last time. I found the recipe in Bon Appetit magazine (years ago) and my family loves it. I lost my copy of the recipe and tried unsuccessfully to find it on Epicurious and I just cajoled it out the owner/chef this weekend. I had promised (sorry, honey) to make this when the kitchen was completed. Recipe finally in hand, I will make it next weekend and post the results and recipe.
