An (Armchair)Adventure with Some Seriously Sexy Food

I’m thinking I need to take a trip soon to help quell the over-flowing wanderlust I’ve been suffering from lately. And not one of those well-planned out trips with reservations and logistics. I mean the kind that happen because you’re on the verge of sleep deprivation and someone starts off with “You know what would be epic…?” and ends with you waking up to the sound of sheep under the shadow of Stonehenge (because it’s the one not-cloudy morning in England for the month).

But in the meantime I still have over 1,000 emails to clear out of my inbox at work and I’ve been in bed by 10 pm all week (and it’s already Monday!) so I’ll just have to make do with this little treat I found during this evening’s browsing (follow the link to travel photos that go with the amazing looking recipe pictured below):

Gastroporn Menu – March.2013

We’re skipping a couple of the winter months and heading straight into Spring! March also happens to be the month where my birthday is located. Happy Silver Jubilee to Me! There are several uses for Blood Oranges in this menu due to the fact that I have recently found a good place to procure them. Perhaps there’s even some illusion to the religious holiday that lands within the vicinity of my Aging Day and the fact that it will signify the end of Lent. I’ve given up buying recreational books and it’s been somewhat trying. Good thing I’ve got a personal library to keep me going!
