Now that the chill of fall is in the air, thoughts turn to creature comforts. Cheeseburger Jr. and I were baking apple bread earlier. (baking + me = rare occurrence) As the bread baked, I looked around the kitchen and started making a list of my favorite foodie things. I share them with you; perhaps you’ll be inspired to create your own. In no particular order:
The hamburger episode of “Julia and Jacques” – Food television at its finest!
Jar of homemade preserved lemons – you can use them in everything
Loose Tea – all tea, all the time
Shallot Confit - one taste of this and you will want to bathe in it
Collection of Thanksgiving cooking magazines (the culinary equivalent of the SI Swimsuit issue)
The cheese drawer in my refrigerator - there’s always a wedge of something on hand
Tattered “Betty Crocker Cookbook” - purchased when I struck out on my own
Organic Onion Flakes - a NEW favorite
Wine tasting glasses – no explanation necessary
Hope you are enjoying the weekend; we are having dinner at a friend’s house tonight. Can’t think of a better way to spend a rainy evening.
We’ll chat soon.
