Weekend escape

Filed under:General — eric @ 4:18 am

I’m christening the oven tonight with small pizzas and a leg of lamb (from a recipe from old Provence, when they used to use wood-fired bread ovens. The book I have, great in most respects, had the laughable line, “Legend has it the villagers used to bake the lamb in the communal wood-fired ovens after the bread had finished.” What a quaint notion of “legend”.). It’s a small family gathering, but we’ll open up the oven to the public with an all-out pizza party at some point. Maybe for my 30th, which will be here sooner than I’ll be ready.

And this weekend Chris and I are going camping with friends. Sunday’s a sentimental day for me; I expect I’ll have things to write about.
