I read the news of the day. Oh, my!! Can I find one happy, juicy tidbit? Ah, yes!! A woman, Julia Moskin, studied cooking with wines. She says it makes no difference if you use an expensive or a cheap wine in your cooking. The cheap ones perk, and the expensive ones fall away, so next time you make coq au vin, you can get away with a cheap bottle of wine. It sounds like she sacrificed many bottles of wine in making this discovery, so be glad the decision is made. She has put Julia Child to rest.
It looks like quite the equinox day. I am going down to Palo Alto to celebrate with friends and will spend the night at Jeff and Jan's in their new home, so will be away for the night. May this day of balance keep the gyroscope of your being in a gentle, loving spin.
