I was trying to pickup groceries last-minute so I could get home in time to watch the Oscars this evening, one of the two award shows I watch each year (the Tony Awards being the other.) I wanted to make something quick and easy so as not to miss any part of the show and YET….it snowed today. Not a lot and only for about 30 minutes, which means the snow stuck to the trees and grass, but not the roads. But the few days it snows here in the Pacific Northwest, conjures up so many thoughts; a roaring fire, curling up on the sofa, and that anticipation of great cooking smells permeating the kitchen and family room. So in the spirit of the Oscars, the contenders were Rack of Lamb, Beef Burgundy, Prime Rib, or Chicken Cacciatore. And the winner is…..Beef Burgundy. And oh yes, looks like Meryl Streep just won – congratulations Meryl!!
