Dinner for Schmucks

Schmucks in this case being myself, Jeff and Michelle. This past weekend we decided to test out our cooking chops and came up with the following menu: braised short ribs, mushroom risotto and a green apple crisp. I would say it was a rousing success. And we celebrated afterward if you catch my drift. And that's not the only thing drifting.

Anyway I wanted to super-slow cook the ribs, but I only had 4 hours instead of 8 hours, so I used this recipe instead. I used farm-raised short ribs from the best grocery store in the east bay - Berkeley Bowl! And nope, it's not a bowling alley as I initially thought. More legit than the Savage [a reference only Bay Area hip-hop heads would get]. About to eat the leftovers for dinner tonight!
