We played hooky from the studio today to work from the screened-in summer porch at CH’s house. MH brought a double-smoked kielbasa for lunch and we cooked it with thick slices of sweet onion, some sturdy escarole, and a splash of chicken broth until the onions were soft and “starchy” (that’s how CH describes sweet onions when they release their sugars and thicken the braising juices). We worked, then ate lunch, then went back to work, never leaving  the porch. All the while, the sounds of the wind blowing through the trees and the calls of the song birds kept us humming along.
