I would appreciate hearing from a hound who has eaten recently at the Plump Jack Cafe San Francisco. (Some years back, the cafe offered a large selection of great wines and, all in all, I found it an enjoyable dining experience.) Thanks.
Here's the ultimate, savory weeknight meal for your family. Extra-lean ground beef (which sometimes cooks up dry) works well here because it's combined with marinara to keep it moist.
Basic Boneless Roasted Leg of Lamb
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
A perfect margarita is a thing of beauty, and dangerously easy to make. Freshly squeezed lime juice, and the proper balance of 100% agave tequila and Cointreau, are essential.
