January 30, 2012

We are having a real thaw here this week.  Temperatures hovering around  60.  Lovely.  I hate freezing my butt off and I also loathe paying money to Con Edison. Be more efficient to just burn the money in the stove directly.

Last weekend we had some good –for-the –soul winter food.  Nothing a visually comforting as a big old standing rib.  It will be a Jacques Pepin’s beef pie tonight.  Sun I was going to to a Coq-au-Vin.  But as I was a tad under the weather I opted for a simple roast chicken.  Nothing in the world better than than when one is not feeling well.

Originally I had been going to serve Julia Child’s lobster oven New Years, but we got to the store too late.  So, I will cook it Sat. to brighten up a gray Feb. evening.
Sun. we’ll be attending Michael Tietz’ Broadway Bach Ensemble up at Columbia.  An afternoon of Beethoven followed by a veal braise.   Life is good…
