We’ve been out of the studio since the holidays and have only just returned today—the coldest day of the year. It’s 3° here in Lambertville (albeit warmer than in some parts of the country!). The canal below us stopped flowing and is locked in frozen chunks of ice. So it’s chile with kabocha squash for our lunch on this chilly day. We’ll sit in front of the fire with our feet on the hearth, eat bowls of this hearty good stuff, and keep warm inside and out.
