It’s a mite chilly here in the northeast. This morning started out at -1°, and many cups of hot coffee later it has only inched up to 14° (though it still feels like -1°). We decided we wanted/needed a hearty meal after hauling armloads of firewood up the stairs to the studio—the old Franklin stove is doing its best to keep us toasty. So it is a braise of cabbage and collards with chicken and spicy sausages for lunch. Bundle up and keep warm; and cook something delicious for yourselves this weekend, dear friends.
