This comment has nothing to do with the Prime Rib mentioned above... But tonight in my apartment my brother and I made your recipe for dry fried shrimp from "Comfort Me With Apples", and it was superb and wonderfully satisfying! After reading so much about MFK Fisher, I felt I had to let you know... because I think for many of us you are like her, not to gush on, and I am sorry, but...I think you understand the compelling need to share with you your impact. Anyway, My brother looked at me and said: "J, people overdo shrimp and flavor, but this is so great because it's real" and I could tell he really loved the simple taste (and the shrimp were so plump). I thought for the new year you might like to hear how much your words and recipes have touched so many, and made a sustainging impact. Best wishes in The Great New York Snow, Jessica

Thanks for the great ideas, I really appreciate it. I am particularly interested in the congee, but if you have time I would love the chili one also. In regards to the chicharrones discussion I saw on the hot dog pg. you posted- Have you ever eaten at Mr Salsas in uptown Chicago? Tiny corner stand, run by two brothers from Mexico, sweet family. Best Mexican food I have ever had, and cheap. Wanted to recommend it to you and your readers. Thanks again, I am reallygrateful. . Best wishes

I am wondering what you think is a great potluck dish? I have to make something for a dinner party for a lit class at my university. I am thinking of taking a bottle of sustainable chardonnay/ Mendocino Valley from Whole Foods; I was considering roasting a dish of veggies,asparagus etc. with olive oil and herbs, or some Braggs? But not sure that will travel well in between classes, and I want something that will be a bit of a treat and surprise, but really needs to be affordable. If you have a minute, would really appreciate your thoughts. Best wishes, ps. love the pictures added into your books- somehow, everything looks as I imagined it! which never really happens in film, pics and books- shows the true craftsmanship and artistry of your words.
