March 5, 2012


We are experiencing the first days of Spring here. Tomorrow it is expected to reach 70 degrees. What a pleasure!  Although in fact Spring is a bit less than two weeks away and we’ve been known to have snow here in April.  But for the moment, it’s a joy and a promise of things to come.

We broke out the old Weber to grill for lunch today. It’s a bit on its last legs, but I can’t say that it owes us anything.  It has to be close to 20 years old.  We’ll think about replacing it later in the season when the sales arrive….

We’re busy making large amounts of various stocks once again.  Chicken and veal done.  Beef, pork, and vegetable to go.  We stock up to get us into fall.  While the big stock pots generate heat that feels wonderful about now – but not so much in August.  And Lord knows we go through it all so rapidly.  It is amazing what a difference a good stock makes in a dish.
