link-o-rama

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but it's been a long week for me. Let's start with some links:

Serious Eats tracks down cheap liquor for lean times. They recommend rum, rye whiskey, bourbon, or Gordon's Gin (ideal for a Gordon's Cup). [via Serious Eats]

Breakfast for dinner can be very economical. Gourmet has a round-up of tasty-sounding ideas [via Gourmet]

A super-easy (and fairly cheap) first course from Mark Bittman: sliced oranges topped with olive paste [via the NYT]

Another simple salad of endive, fennel, and parmesan with anchovy-date dressing, from the Kitchn. The writer was inspired by a dish she ate at Mozza, Mario Batali's L.A. pizza place (that we couldn't get into over a month in advance!). I am constantly inspired by dishes eaten out, so I find it fun to read about what other people are cribbing from restaurant menus. [via the Kitchn]

And just because I love him (and because he loves cupcakes, which is sort of related, right?) I give you....Stains, the Australian Shepard!

(Also, I know he hates the attention, but: Happy Birthday, Daniel!)

Lisa - there were plenty of seats at Mozza's beautiful bar when we strolled in unannounced on a Tuesday night. Skip the reservation and sit at the bar!

Thanks for the shout-out!

cheers,

Thanks, Sara Kate! (I love the Kitchn, as you can see.)

I'm definitely going to try Mozza again the next time I'm in LA. The menu sounds so good.

Warning: Do not look Stains directly in the eyes unless you want to be hypnotized into doing his bidding.
