a few of my favourite things
the weather outside IS frightful. i hear sleet. but inside i smell roast chicken soon to be accompanied by sauteed broccoli rabe in olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper and a squeeze of lemon. also attending will be orzo tossed with juices from the chicken, salt , pepper and a knob of butter. this deliciousness will be served whenever german girl gets off the malfunctioning metro and sister of brings back our dog! i'm admiring a vase of roses brought to us on saturday from pinchbecks rose farm in guilford, conecticut. they opened perfectly, the lavender roses smell like summer, and as i turned the vase around for another shot, they shattered over the table. summer is indeed over.
