  1. Ok, 3 things here:
    1) Mac n cheese looks so scrumptious! However, I made the decision to skip cast iron skillet stage and went straight to an enameled cast iron 3 1/2 quart oval briaser-type dish. It’s the only thing I have that can go on the stove and in the oven. Will it work here, d’ye think?
    2) I love seeing the Brillat-Savarin cheese, but haven’t tasted it yet- do you have anything short by him to recommend? I’ve looked at the books by him and they are so loooong, it’s like I’m back reading Frankenstein in high school. His quotes are so interesting though…
    3) Recipe for brussels sprouts and bacon side? Oh, bacon. 🙂

    Echoing the request for the recipe for brussel sprouts and bacon! That looked absolutely simple and delicious for a side dish.

    Marrow? Damn.
    See, I know it’s crazy delicious. My dad was addcited to it. Mum always bought a big fat bone and threw it into the Galician Stew so my dad could get his kicks off.
    But it simply looks very unappetizing to my eyes.
    Yes, I know, I should eat with my tastebuds and not my eyes.
    Anyways, love the pics as usual, specially the roasted chicken porn.

    Margie – Thanks! And yes, those are marrow bones!

    Margaret – I’m sure your braiser will work just fine! As for the Brillat-Savarin, love the cheese, have never read the man.

    and to you, Cheryl and sarah, unfortunately, that Brussels and bacon recipe is still a work in progress 🙂

    Marcos – Thanks! The marrow on toast was out of this world. Mike and I have done it at home, but I never would have thought to serve it as party fare! Our friends Jan and Abe threw quite the fete on Saturday night.

  5. Marcos, you crazy vegan Commie, I actually think marrow’s also visually appealing. I think the first time I had it out was at Prune in New York, and when they served it, my eyes almost popped out of my head because I was so excited by how it looked.

    Jennifer – the MD was a “hostess gift” brought (not by us, unfortunately) to the party we attended – hilarious!
