The Weekend List

29 Oct

They are calling for snow in the mountains of Charlottesville. I cannot believe winter is already here. To honor the capricious season, here is the Weekend List:

*Since I am obsessed with saffron (see here and here), I found Tim Carman’s story about the Saffron King running out of his namesake spice both an interesting and sad tale. Read it here.

*I would love one of these.

*It’s going to be freezing cold (and snowing), so I might just give that Beef Bourguignon a try. Or this.

*This weather makes my want to roast some chestnuts and have a quiet afternoon with this spread.

*Almost done reading this. Next up is Barry Eastabrook’s Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit. Listen to this NPR interview.

*I couldn’t get enough of Anthony Bourdain’s Medium Raw, looking forward to seeing this on Sunday night! Look out for a full report!

Happy weekend and happy thoughts!
