A thought piece about many things that are right about staying put.
A brief tale of survival in southeast Utah, a great pot roast that marinates for three days, and special usage of the 35th most common word in the English language.
Ruminations from my back porch — millennial slang, 60s slang, a great celery seed salad dressing, and Mainers are getting psyched to see Troy Jackson run for Governor in 2018.
Leaving New Mexico… not as easy as it could’ve been. And some thoughts on those who leave us. Simple advice: don’t stay too long at the fair.
Recalling humongus 1950s breakfasts, thoughts on food insecurity in Maine, and a terrific “fuggedaboutit” focaccia with rosemary baking recipe.
Super delicious repost of one of my top favorite dishes – a bit of work with a yuuuge payoff.
