December 5, 2011


After Thanksgiving weekend and the week following, it is good now to get back to more rustic cooking. Shop Rite, who has decent meat, had a very good special this week on whole loin of pork.  We bought four.  So, I’m guessing you’ll see a lot of pork in the near future.  Which is hardly a hardship – it’s reasonably healthy and so many ways to prepare it….

And we are getting back into our routine again, having caught up on our rest.  I’ve again started with the French.  It is not easy, I’m not very good at foreign languages, but I really want to get the basics down so I have some idea what people are saying when we hit Paris next year.  Or, perhaps, just as important….what I am eating. You might say I want to sink my teeth into the entire experience.

Warner has extended our food BLOGing recently.  It is difficult to pick up a spatula without facing a camera.  But, hopefully, this will prove worth while.
Now, it’s back to the ironing, the gym, the French, and of course, dinner.
