  1. It was so hot and stiflingly humid when i took out the trash — at 6AM, I admit dreading to see the warming contents of this menu. LOL. 🙂 But it really does sound delicious! Huge hugs my friend.

    • I know, I sit with my AC blasting reading this delicious winter menu. BTW, could not leave a comment on your blog, it’s closed but wanted you to know I am waiting patiently for the train to pull into the station and the next episode to start!!! You cannot hurry genius!!

      June 20, 2015
      • Hahaha! Apparently you can’t hurry me much either! You’re too kind Suzanne. (When i posted the “update” i thought i had disabled comments… then saw i had not… answered those… then tired to disable again… failed again… LOL. You get the idea. I love the comments. They’re the high point of my week. But I knew i couldn’t take time to answer the ones for the update, and finish writing the episode too. But it’s so nice of you to want to leave one. Really it is.) Mega hugs!
