Happy New Year

Sipping a damn fine martini, made by my personal mixologist, I’m tempted to reflect on some recent meals.

Today’s chowda was an adventure, but so incredibly satisfying. I brought home clams, having read a recipe on the King Arthur Flour site, but when I got home, the recipe no longer inspired me. Instead, CHOW’s Chow-der stepped up. It required a few other ingredients, and Chris hopped to it, with the promise of some New England-style chowder on the other side.. Many hours later, delectable it was. Satisfying on this drizzly January day.

In other news, it’s really January?

Also made some oatmeal-wheat bread, using this incredibly easy recipe: Oat-Wheat Loaf. It required kneading, but it’s easy enough for to be made regularly.
