All quiet on the Midwestern-front today. Tired people in this house. John briefly napped, I seriously napped, it was awesome. We had a nice little brunch, broiled crab salad sandwiches. We had ours sans egg but they’re mighty tasty with an over-easy egg on top, I must say. (Recipe posted in comments, below.) Add a…

Today I’ll be brewing up a big batch of Boy Soup… Nine 10-year old boys will soon be here, swimming, despite pouring rain and a high, if we’re lucky, of 55 degrees. Ack! But as all the parents agreed, the boys don’t give a hoot about the weather, so in they’ll go! The heat’s cranked…

Stacey? Stephanie? Sheesh, we’ve always looked like each other, but going through these photos yesterday it did hit me that there’s no doubt we’re related. Ha. And that’s an honor for me, let me tell you. I don’t have Stacey’s cheekbones, unfortunately, or cool arched eyebrows. Or slim hips. Those she got from our mom….

La, la, lovely! Oh, Spring, sigh. After I showered, I gave myself a spritz of Frederic Malle En Passant (lilac, heavenly scent) and a dab of Christian Dior Diorissimo (the classic, lily of the valley, also heavenly). Nothing over the top, but I do smell girlie and like spring, sitting here in my office. As…

I’ll choose to call this morning crisp, not chilly, given it’s pleasantly sunny and green. I’ll not deign to call it glorious, however. Oh, wait, that’s right, I’m supposed to not tempt the weather gods. Then I take it back, I take it back immediately. A glorious morning, quite worthy of praise. (And it is,…

Going a little truffle this evening, heh, heh, heh. Just John and me, our usual Monday evening, and I’m itching to cook after a weekend of eating out. And I have this jar of white truffles, from Zabar’s, calling my name… I know, it’s nothing like having a fresh white (or black) truffle, I’ve had…

Happy Birthday Tom! Today is John’s little bro Tom’s birthday. Tom has assigned military codenames for the people in his life. His wife Valerie is Whitewater. His son Cameron is The General. I’m Smoky, so named a couple of years ago while John and Tom were on the phone on a Saturday morning while I…

Zabar’s baby! Oh yeah, oh yeah. NY-deli feast tonight, arrived this a.m., to celebrate round II of John’s birthday. Shrimp and lobster salads, H&H bagels, chive cream cheese, pastrami, corned beef, sour-dough rye, chocolate chip cookies. Basically, all of John’s favs. And mine too – OMG, can’t wait to sink my teeth into a warm…

Happy Birthday to the most amazing husband in the whole world – J..O..H..N!!! Woo hoo! John. My John. My best friend. Best other things too, but never you mind about that. Unashamedly selfish and unendingly generous all at the same time – that’s the key to his hilariously dichotomous core, that’s his charm. That and…

Burgers. Beer. No Brownies, though. Hmmm. I know, Bed! Bed works, to keep my alliterative barbecue triumvirate in power… I won’t be in bed while I consume burgers or beer, but soon thereafter, so I say it counts. Burgers. Beer. Bed. Have a good night yourself. (I’m rushing, back out onto the deck for yet…
