Never mind the fact that New Moon has far too much of werewolves running around with their pants tied to their ankles with a little strap that they probably pee all over, today is November 20th! Finally! Women and their daughters have been waiting for this day for over a year, because today is the day we are reunited with our beloved Edward Cullen. To endure the long wait on line at the movie theater, and build up your stamina for all the heart pounding, I offer you Veal a la Volturi. Enjoy.
Veal a la Volturi
You will need:
1 large can tomatoes
1 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. olive oil
2 veal chops
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, thinly sliced
Dry red wine
Diversion for boyfriend/ husband
Rub yourself all over with body glitter and stand in the sun. When people start to stare, look longingly at them then abruptly leave. Remove veal chops from refrigerator, or alternately, from small cow you have slaughtered to thwart temptation to feed on humans. Pound chops thin with your amazing vampire muscles, cold as marble and strong as thunder.
In a skillet, heat butter and 1 Tbs. olive oil and saute onions until translucent as the skin of Aro, ancient Volturi who knows you are making this veal right now and planning on going to the movies later. Add the tomatoes and simmer for two minutes. Then take the dried herbs in your fingers and crush them easily into a powder, as you would a boulder. Toss them into the pot with the minced garlic.
Get boyfriend/ husband out of the house and spend a little time on the computer looking at this, this, this and this. Sigh.
Place remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil into another skillet and brown chops all over. Then lay them gently, as if laying in a misty flowering meadow, and cover with red wine. Let the wine pour all over them, running down the supple flesh. Drink some wine yourself, feeling the rush of it burning past your throat, satisfying an overwhelming urge deep inside you and feeding you with life itself. Add a bay leaf.
Simmer until most of the wine has reduced and enjoy while looking at this.
