A chicken in the pot with leeks, Italian parsley, carrots, celery, thyme and peppercorns. Balm for the ragged throat.
I binged on pears today at Whole Foods: one comice, one bartlett, one d'Anjou, one bosc, one red and four seckels, also known as "sugar pears." I'll put the red in a salad of romaine, sliced celery, toasted walnuts and a blue cheese vinagrette. The rest will be honey on the tongue!
