Julie, Too funny! We love them, as well. Were currently debating whether our next puzzle should be cereal boxes, gum wrappers, or Mad Magazine-style crazy packages -- decisions, decisions!! All SO good. Glad you enjoyed them, as well! xx, M

I walked by it for years, Ellen, before giving it a go, a few months ago. Im duly impressed. Still love the nose-to-tail aspect of boiling up our bones, following a roast, to use every last bit. But the bones havent kept pace, this year! Give it a go, let me know what you think! xx, M

Indeed, a soup much great than the sum of its parts! And yes, I meant to mention that even frozen spinach or kale would, Ive no doubt, shine here. xx, M

Annette was in town, this weekend. If sentences could be synonyms, this one would be synonymous with "Squeeeee!!!!" We dreamed big, did little, which is probably what we always do. The peanut butter restaurant, which I always vow to visit when guests are in town, remains unpatronized. Roller skating? Didn't happen. The Conservatory? Uh huh. The kouign aman and pain au chocolat and winter walks? Nope. I love winter, and I love cold, but I'm no fool. When the mercury reads -10 (and mind, the mercury doesn't read wind chill), I love winter best when framed by six panes, preferably... Continue reading

Sounds pretty much perfect :) M

Mary Ray, Indeed, Id never heard of Brown Windsor soup! Though just saying the words make me grin :) Thanks so much for the link, and the time to share it. Ive looked it up and read about it with great curiosity; must listen to the programme when the day is young, and the peeps not sleeping! Best to you, Molly

Yeah!!! So glad you liked it, Lisa! I think Ive eaten it six times since, myself. A bottomless pit when it comes to lentil soup, apparently! Stay warm :) xx, M

Julia Child is right, of course. And always. But here, I do prefer (thick-ish) slices, as quarters dont behave the same way. The slices brown and crisp so evenly that I suffer their serious shrinkage. (I do favor quarters in stews, and in the roasting pan, and underneath a chicken.) Buttered mushrooms on pizza??? Oh, my.

Ellen, I think lentil soup would be JUST the thing to ring in a welcome home! Black caviar lentils work swimmingly, here. That was what I used, thrice last week, and what you see pictured above. (They go brown and muddy in the making, but are black as pitch, to begin.) That said, Im sure the little lovely green French du Puy lentils would work beautifully. As, I suspect, would the common brown lentil, the .99/bag grocery store staple, so long as youre more on the smooth than toothsome side of the line. I love it both ways. Enjoy! Molly

Only half of mine eat them. And still, never enough.

So, so good, all of this. From those lucid, indelible moments, to the The well-worn, well-loved (!) body. There are, I think, volumes to be written on behalf of clothes that are not only flattering, but comfortable, in every way. And with wit and style to boot To wit: that thin, fine line between skinny jeans and beyond yoga pants [though goodness, they have their place], a line which is preferably made of voile, maybe Anna Marie Horner, possibly Moda, either way, wonderful and lovely and kind and gentle and true. Yes, please do speak more on this subject. Wise words are needed, and welcome, for sure. xx, Molly

I think I surprised no one more than myself when, in college, I majored in medieval art history. As in, seriously majored. I studied Latin. Dove into Romanesque corbels. Spent one long summer encased in the University of Washington's oldest, most-un-air-conditioned building, 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, attempting to osmose a full year of German in seven very short, very hot weeks. I wrote 30-page term papers detailing the onset and evolution of sumptuary laws in England and across the content between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries. My spell-check doesn't even admit sumptuary is a word. (Trust... Continue reading

Hey, Im a 12-month-a-year soup-slurper myself, so nothing but encouragement here! And you probably have access to fresh herbs, which only improves the thing. I say go for it!! xx, M

Maybe lentils disguised as soup? Its funny, mine arent necessarily huge fans, either, but sunk into a soup, aswim with other things, they transform, somehow. And if they still dont go for it... more for you, indeed! xx, M

Ha! Well enough to type! A good sign, indeed :) Seriously, that was potato soup for the record books. And clearly, my memory for such things is loooong :) Not soon forgotten, that one. Rest up! No day to be going outside, this one :) M

Ah, thanks, Lisa. I hope you and yours have remained well and strong this winter, as well. Now I need to get around to Luisas ACTUAL beans! xx, M

Ha! And I just received my (long-awaited, and not very patiently) copy of the second volume, this very day. Squeee!!! Must finish current read so as to see what Ms. Flavia is up to next. Hope you adore her as much as I do! Shes pretty fantastic. xx, M

Ooooh, lamb! That sounds fantastic. And yes to the spinach. Had I been driving-able, I would have added a heap of greens as well, as I plan to next time. I wonder how mint would fare with that lamb? A splodge of yogurt? Oh, it sounds lovely! Happy New Year to you and your peeps! xx, M

Ha! I didnt even notice that the wine was reduced -- just caught the flavors, couldnt get them out of my mind. I just added a splosh of straight-up red, leftover from the night before, in place of some stock. One cup, give or take. Absolutely fantastic. And Flavia de Luce is utterly fantastic!!! I dont even like mysteries. But when the heroines an 11-year-old Brit with a mad penchant for chemistry, acid wit, and regulation pigtails? Pretty sure her only downside is that shes limited to seven volumes. For now... xx, M
