It's that time of year in Seattle - the wet cold. Have you seen Anchorman with Will Ferrell? There's a time limit on the need for spoiler alerts, right? Well, small spoiler alert...
There's a scene towards the end where Will Ferrell's character bravely jumps into a dangerous situation to save someone. His character then says, "And I immediately regret my decision." That's how I've been feeling on these grey days when I go out to conquer the world.
It's soup and stew weather. So I couldn't resist reading this great New York Times article on borscht. Apologies if the paywall prevents you from reading it. I was at the NYT debating whether I should subscribe again. I'm currently subscribed to the Washington Post and really need to subscribe to the Seattle Times. The Washington Post probably has some of the best reporting right now, but it's tough to beat New York Times Food, Art, Science, and Travel. (Travel? What's that?) That's a long way of admitting that I opened a private browser window in Firefox and was able to read the article.
I've had the borscht from Dingfelder's and Dacha. Both delicious. I may look around for a heartier version or an equivalent. Any suggestions?
