I spent the weekend in Michigan with my dad and stepmom, and there was quite a bit of great eating and drinking. I'll have another post or two up later, but I present for now our Easter dinner, which was a spectacular prime rib.
To start, we had some arancini - fried risotto balls with cheese filling and marinara sauce along with some champagne. Life's tough, I know. We also enoyed a Nero D'avola from Sicily that I schlepped from NY along with a Thomas Hyland Cab.
For the main course we had a perfectly prepared prime rib that was large enough to basically kill us. Preparation was nothing more than a little seasoning and roasting it in the oven. It was acocmpanied by asparagus roasted with balsamic vinegar and fingerling potatoes.
We wanted a big red to accompany dinner, so we drank a bottle of the biggest Italian, a Barolo.
Also pictured is this salt which my father is very proud of. I admit, it's good salt.
