  1. I got a bunch at the beginning of Quarantine (as you had to get a bunch of EVERYTHING then). And I have to say I never remotely tired of them.
  2. Ramps are expensive. But at least they stay in the low double digits.
  3. Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4 "Tragic" (Böhm/Berliner Philharmoniker) (the least tragic anything labelled "tragic" in probably all of Western culture) Gluck: Orfeo ed Eurycide: Dance of the Blessed Spirits//Beethoven: Symphony No. 5//Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night's Dream: Scherzo & other incidental music (Toscanini/Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York) of Montreal: The Sunlandic Twins Mayr: Gioas (Brown/Seller/Frey/Burkhardt//Hauk/Simon Mayr Chorus & Ensemble/Bavarian State Opera Chorus) (everything is totally forgettable except the tune that's direct
  4. Really it's all butter and carbs. Protein def takes a back seat.
  5. I'd never made a Thanksgiving dinner before. The sheer amount of butter that went into this astonished me. Barded truffled roast partridge, on a bed of mashed rutabaga and carrot, with a red wine pan gravy. Stuffing (in the bird and outside: there's only so much stuffing you can fit into a partridge). A corn pudding that started out as inspired by soofle but that deviated enough that it probably isn't fair to invoke that Indiana classic. A roast sweet potato. Steamed brussels sprouts. I feel like I am going to die. An American Pinot Noir, obvs. I should have opened somet
  6. I can tell you this: you go to Argentina and he was like some kind of diety.
  7. There could not possibly be.
  8. Some flavor impressions: black cherries! cranberries! bell peppers! black pepper! licorice!
  9. Lutoslawski: Symphonic Variations/Mala Suita/Symphony No. 2/Piano Concerto (Paleczny//Wit/Polish National Symphony Orchestra) Beethoven: String Quartets Nos. 7-9 ("Rasumovsky" Quartets), 10 "Harp" & 11 "Serioso" (Tokyo String Quartet) Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 (Böhm/Berliner Philharmoniker) Phillip Glass: Recent Recordings (various) Martha Argerich: Live from Lugano 2016 Chen Yi: Chinese Rap (Kennesaw State University School of Music) Various: The Rough Guide to Brazilian Lounge Axial: Axial (wow this is REALLY good)
  10. Berkshire porterhouse pork chop. I LOVE these! Grilled. With some charred sweet and hot peppers on top. Ayocote Blanca beans on the side -- with rice, cuz, as you might have heard, I have this new rice cooker. And steamed broccolini. What a good dinner! There are about 8,000 reasons why you'd want a Cabernet Franc with this. 2015 Domaine Fabrice Gasnier Chinon "L'Ancienne" This isn't the greatest wine in the world. But for the $15 or so it cost, it might as well be. The fruit is deep and dark. And while this isn't a wine of extreme complexity, there's stuff
  11. I'm in the exact same position! I placed an order last night.
  12. Evelyn: 20% off everything on Regalis's website till Monday (at least if you're on their mailing list).
