We’re back! We took a train out of Penn Station early Friday and spent four glorious days in Providence, Rhode Island. What a lovely time, and as you can see, we ate VERY well (click here to see our biggest splurge, a 7 course tasting at Gracie’s, with wine pairings). I’m glad it’s a short week for us, because we’re still regrouping – I threw together a quick-and-dirty pasta all’amatriciana when we arrived home last night (which went unphotographed, as my memory card was bulging), and my darling husband is taking apart a couple of chickens as we speak (as I type?) for tonight’s meal.
Thanksgiving is just days away now, and some of you may be wondering what we have planned. I must admit that with our trip falling so close to the holiday, we elected to make the simplest thing possible: reservations. After pulling out all of the stops for the last couple of years in what limited workspace we have to prepare a feast for two, I just couldn’t do it this year. Still, we have a great meal to look forward to, and Mike and I both send warm wishes to all of you for a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. See you next week!
