September 2, 2013


My prophecy proved correct.  The night I planned for Tuscan Chicken Cooked Under a Brick it rained – as it has every time  I have put it on the menu this summer.  Years ago I had a lovely recipe for a dessert Sweet Cranberry soup.  Every time I planned one serving it, it rained.  Now I’m not  superstitious – I simply haven’t served that soup in 25 years.  I’ll have to figure something else out for the chicken.  It’s too damn good  to ignore…

This weekend supposedly is the end of summer.  I feel confused.  I don’t feel as though summer has really begun.  The strange weather we’ve been experiencing is something else.  Any number of evenings recently we’ve had the a/c running upstairs to make the bedroom comfortable while running the  space heater in the dining room during dinner.  Which probably means we’ll have snow in October and a heat wave for Thanksgiving.  Things have been going like that…..
