See you after the holidays

ikebanaThis is January 2010 ikebana arrangement from my desk calendar, and it is what I’ll be staring at when I next return to my desk.

I will not be back on this blog before the New Year unless I feel an overwhelming urge to share some tale of holiday dining or cooking.

So you will either find some really bad iPhone pictures of my attempts at making a bûche de Noël, or I’ll see you next year with news of my next dining-out project.

Thanks for reading this blog. I really, really appreciate all your comments, insights and good humor.

We’ll miss you John. I will tell you the next time we converse I’ll be about 10 lbs heavier. The family’s having a little reunion down in South GA starting this evening and daddy will be doing his usual-BBQ like no one else can. Nothing like a cold night standing by the grill w/ the BBQ cooking slow. What really makes it special is the chill of the vinegar based sauce that has been sitting outside hitting that hot and moist BBQ.

I’ll be honest-the whole thing is flat out sexy.

Thanks for the great column. You and I share the same sentiment about ground beef. Please read an article in NYT today about processed beef : Company’s Record on Beef Treatment Questioned
Published: December 30, 2009

This company supplie beef “products” to McDonalds, Burger King and others.
