Be Warm Tonight



It's a toe-warming coincidence that the first ice pellets of the season fell out of the sky the same day that I planned to cook the first lamb shanks of the season. The picture above was taken from my roof as I returned home from work. Until I live in the country in my little house of dreams, I'll take a twinkly city skyline and be grateful for it.
The DVD fireplace is on, the shanks are simmering in red wine, rosemary, garlic, and onions. The pressed balsam incense is burning. The candles are lit, and all is good. I hope all my lovely friends in the Blog world are as content and lucky this evening!

I need to give you a brussel sprout hash recipe to go with the lamb. Italian potatoes is good too.

And the picture of the sky line is priceless, absolutely stunning.
