1. slices of grilled albacore on salad with mango salsa
2. bread and cheese
3. panna cotta
Sometimes I get such a craving for something that it almost turns into obsession. Like panna cotta. Not that I'd ever actually had panna cotta before mind you. How does that happen? Or is it just me? Nevermind.
Panna cotta - essentially milk jello. Doesn't exactly sound craveable now does it? Oh but it is. It's every thing I hoped it would be. Smooth, cool, creamy, decadent and light all at the same time. I flavored it with vanilla bean and topped it with toasted coconut. When we ate it at home we topped it with sliced almonds and poured a little smidge of amaretto on top as well but because I ate this at work I didn't add the liquor - though lord knows only copious amounts of alcohol would sure make the day more bearable.
