  1. She would be known here as 'Yumyum'. Hard to imagine such a bright light to be gone so young. She came to my home in Vermont for lunch a couple of times with Abbylovi. My heart's broken for her family and friends.

    The two of them are tireless...2 restaurants, 2 kids, giant garden, retail sausage business. And always always upbeat. I guess you can do that when you're in your 30s.

    FYI...Wes and his wife Chloe just opened a burger joint in an old gas station in Rawsonville VT: https://www.facebook.com/eatathoneypie Filled a gaping hole in the restaurant scene around here; it's been successful beyond their wildest imagination. Their fine dining restaurant, SoLo, is doing quite well, too: http://solofarmandtable.com/
  4. I'll play. I've finished planting all of the vegetable garden (13 raised beds). But I still have 5 flats of plants, from various nurseries, waiting to be tucked into a cutflower bed or assorted containers for front and back decks. I'd have done that today, but I have 8 3-week old chicks in a starter coop, who will need access to the out-of-doors by next weekend (assuming the October-like weather we had this weekend gives way to something like summer). So I arranged protective fencing around their coop, which involved a lot of stapling, cutting, digging, staking, and securing – with a variety of screws, brackets, zip-ties, rope, and re-bar. That should keep them happy for another month, by which point they should be grown up enough to integrate with the rest of the flock (14 laying hens and a very chill rooster named Fabio). After such a mild non-winter, spring here in Vermont has been...remarkably changeable. So far this June, we've had April, August, March, and October, but not so much June.
  5. Please feel no angst. Husband repeatedly remarks that instructions are written by experts, or at a minimum by those very familiar with the product. They should be written by someone who has never seen the product before given his sample. Like the rest of us. This is what I do for a living, albeit for the automotive industry.
  6. I can never forget this piece she wrote about her brother Lincoln: http://www.nytimes.com/1991/08/18/magazine/the-story-of-a-street-person.html?pagewanted=all Godspeed, Elizabeth.
  7. Their new 'big email program' is fantastic. Delicious pizza with a not-to-think crust delivered hot to my Inbox every morning!
  8. This thread reminds me why I stopped hanging around Mouthfuls. I check in every so often and find more of the same and then I go away again. Bye, now.
  9. Here's a tip from the hinterlands, where we take our snow and cold in stride. THIS is a snow shovel: This is a revenue stream:
  10. Who, exactly, is Lena Dunham blowing at the New Yorker that they just can't get enough of her? Now it's an exposé of her pathetic dog fetish.
  11. Made this one this evening. On your advice, I salted a little heavily from the start. Delicious. I went the full 1.5 hours to let the marinade concentrate. I also zapped everything under the broiler for 5 minutes at the end. I recommend this. I improvised a salad with the parsley I had left over - very thinly sliced yellow onion and peeled cucumber with chopped parsley, dressed with Meyer lemon juice, toasted walnut oil, S&lotsofP. Perfect foil to the richness of the dish. I made the full recipe, even though it was just the two of us. I look forward to using the leftovers on a 'pizza'.
  12. 'Slipped on a banana peel' got nothin on a penguin.
  13. I made the lentil & celeriac dish from Plenty last weekend – Puy lentils with barely cooked celeriac, dressed with chopped toasted hazelnuts and mint, red wine vinegar and hazelnut oil. Way too delicious – couldn't stop eating it.
  14. Have you seen Confessions of a Dangerous Mind? He is brilliant in that.That's the first thing I remember seeing him in. He really was brilliant. I didn't realize he was in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galexy. It's available on Amazon streaming so I can check it out. Thanks StephanieI liked him in Moon, a sci-fi dramaMoon is available on Amazon as well. Plus it has the added bonus of Kevin Spacey! I'll check it out. My first recollection of Rockwell is his fine criminal little creep in Mamet's Heist, which is just a great flick. (Gene Hackman... )
