mostly mediterranean

Hello, Brat – and good-bye.

No food this time – just an account of perhaps the most extraordinary half year in my life, in Brattleboro, Vermont, in the late ’90s.

The two-slit experiment – and Bolognese Perfecto!

I try to make the famous two-slit experiment in quantum physics simple and accessible. Uh huh. How do you do that when the final results are utter nonsense? Also a terrific, smooth and rich Bolognese sauce – much better than the recipe I posted years ago.

Mashies – heart-healthy Mediterranean-style!

Great heart-healthy mashed potatoes this week – no dairy or butter or other fatty stuff like that. Once again, Mediterranean cuisine has the answer (it’s actually French, but from Provence, which is sort of close to the Mediterranean). Not a lot to laugh at because I’m cranky with a head cold and sore shoulder. Grrrr.
