Lovely menu. Still love your asparagus from Comfort Me....cooked in big skillet, then dunked into balsamic vinegar. Could you print out recipe for the Apricot Crumb Tart?

With Thanksgiving coming up in three weeks I'm always fretting what dinners to serve and make ahead a couple of days before the feast for eight to ten people. (Restaurants in our small town are always too crowded before and after TG) At our house those meals are expected to be almost as good as the big dinner on Thursday. Your Black Bean Chili comes to mind. Any other suggestions?
Missing your essence of summer recipes. Are you on tour? Just made Aunt Birdie's Potato Salad with six pounds freshly pulled from the rich soil at a nearby Amish farm. With Cincinnati German metts and roasted corn.....mmmmm: a Feastiary.

Dear Ruth - You might enjoy this website - the food part, that is - from a son who lives on a little island in Puget Sound.

I was blown away by the creativity of "the most beautiful dish." Think lush, abstract painting. Those grads of CIA could use a little prodding from a high school art teacher.

New Year's Eve. ..the January Pudding in the covered Dutch oven is simmering clickety-clack on the stove. My husband looked perplexed as we are going out for dinner. "I bet you any amount of $$ you'll never guess what's in that pot", I said. Heasked "animal, vegetable or mineral?" I countered with something like it had to be animal since it had eggs in it. He began to guess mincemeat. Can't wait to have it at midnight when we return. . Thank you!

I forwarded your kind words about Lucky Peach to son Mark who wrote the article about Lebanon Bologna. His little toddler loves the animated image (on the Internet) of his father next to article. And we enjoyed your piece about ramen in issue #1.

On the subject of cooking corn - this may sound blasphemous but I find that the microwave does a lovely job. Left in husks, somewhat trimmed and using the timing in Barbara Kafka's Microwave Gourmet...two ears five minutes, four ears 14, etc. Then, I present the ears on top of husk leaves sprinkled with a combo of Lawry's seasoned salt and chili powder.

Except for your warm pecah cobbler made with yellow and/or white peaches from a nearby orchard. . I've made it five times in less than a month.

Loved the sweet/sour taste of the fruit and the luscious topping. Found pie hard to cut. Could it be the frozen pie shell, left frozen? Will make one from scratch and freeze 15 min. as per recipe.

Dear Ruth - Besides your make-ahead Indian chicken could you post some other easy "patio picnic" sides (Aunt Birdie's salad is a standard) that I could make for 8 in a "strange" kitchen? The vindaloo paste and epazote for black beans are already in my travel kitchen box. :-)

I've been making moros y christianos ever since my husband and I first ate them at the Columbia Restaurant in Sarasota, Fla. almost fifty years ago. It's become a family signature dish. No other version never measured up.....until your "wonderful black beans" above. Fabulous. I've made them three times Had to go to a little Mexican restaurant here in Lancaster, Pa. for a sprig of epazote!

Since you mention cherries and their liquid....if I make this with frozen sour cherries from the supermarket should I add some extra sour cherry juice? There is a Greek brand sold in a carton that's quite good.
Loving your gift guide. One idea is not part of it but nevertheless Ruthie-inspired. Truffle salt...with which you rubbed your filet roast. I scratched off the price tag so curmudgeon husband wouldn't see it. Rubbed the salt on a little eye of round pour deux. You're right about the smell. The earthy, woodsy aroma permeated the kitchen.

A lesser cousin might be the eau de vie Slivovitz made from plums in Croatia. My Romanian father keeps a bottle of it in his bar.

Speaking of hot dogs, did you ever try the Coneys, specialty of Skyline Chili in my home town, Cincinnati? Not as healthy as the 4505s but on a bun topped with that special sauce, a cloud of finely shredded yellow cheese and chopped onion - addictive. What Skyline is really famous for are the five-ways - a layer of spaghetti, chili, beans, cheese and chopped onion. Served always on an oval plate with oyster crackers on side. MMMMM: a feastiary.

Where oh where could I find a copy of mmmmm: a feastiary? I have made most of the recipes from the book listed on this blog but crave more.

Dear Ruth - Thanksgiving input, PLEASE. Especially make-ahead dishes. Your" incinerated" brussel sprouts - right off the stalk -are a tradition.

I promise not to be a blog pest. Since I'm German I was asked to bring potato salad for 25 to a neighborhood Novemberfest. Thought I'd quadruple Aunt Birdie's and, just for the occasion name it Slightly German Potato Salad. Wonderfully subtle, as is. But I am tempted to add crumbled up bacon for the event. Would that be a travesty? Regine Ibold

I would love to know what accompaniments you served with the elegant beef roast. I found the truffle salt and am excited to try it. An easy potato dish? Rice? String beans or brussel sprouts? Regine Ibold
