11-15-14 Afternoon Delight

As part of my birthday week celebration Katherine took me to “A Private Wine Tasting” at the Italian Wine Merchants. Topic was the Killer Bs of Italy (Barolo, Brunello, Barbaresco and the newcomer to the group, Bolgheri.)

A very enjoyable two hours filled with information, great cheese, speck, prosciutto and, oh yeah, a few wines.

As you can tell from the high quality of these shots…a good time was had by all.

1-23-13 Cold Meat And Vegetables

“It was so cold this morning, I saw a chicken with a capon.”

Carl deSuze, WBZ-AM radio morning drive time DJ some morning when my mother was driving me to school.

Winter finally arrived this week on the East Coast, but all we have in NYC is cold and wind. It was somewhere between 10-14 this morning. Not a drop of snow though.

The look of the Union Square Greenmarket changes significantly in this weather.

A bit early for me
