larry, you're almost in my neck of the woods. We're about 45 minutes from Hartford.

Katie, it sounds like a delightful night. Did you wear your new, sparkly earrings?

Andy, I thought some of my soup from last night was missing from the refrigerator...

*******************

Ohio State Football was on TV tonight, so I decided to make my riff on the original Quisno sub. Quisno's Sub House was a stone's throw from the Ohio State campus. Also just across the street from my friend Marlene's apartment. Smelled those yummy things, along with their pizza, till 3:00 AM whenever I visited her. Anyway, the original were nothing like the chain version. The chain was started by some former employee of the original. Nowhere near as good. Anyway, along with our lovely sandwiches we finished off the potato salad from earlier in the week.

Wasn't feeling well so I had a bowl of oatmeal with a splash of milk and turned in early.

Terrific !!!
So if my daughter decides to go to school in this area I know where to send her for a home cooked meal

Don't think Im stalking you. Over the next few months we will be visiting a few other schools in the area, as well as a convention up in Boston. I feel like Im on the road.

Stuffed and baked acorn squash. Stuffing was homemade Andouille sausage, red bell pepper chunks, onion, mushrooms, with sage, dijon mustard and red wine, then fontina cheese on top.

Nothing. I slept right through until four this morning. And I am still not hungry. I have an appointment with the gastroenterologist tomorrow. I hope he finds what I think my swallowing problem is. That won't solve my eating problem as a whole, but it is a start. Never thought I would look forward to what I am facing.

I made straccotto - Italian pot roast with reconstituted dried porcini mushrooms and their soaking water, homemade stewed tomatoes, red wine, rosemary and bay leaf, served over polenta with garden-fresh green beans simmered in the sauce while the meat rested. Toasted seasoned Italian bread on the side and leftover Halloween candy for dessert.

Delicious! I'll take this as a reminder that I haven't made this in a long time.

It was a cold, windy, drizzly day, so we needed something hearty. I'm so glad it's soup/stew/long-cooking season again

Agree. I really enjoy winter dishes - soups, stews, braises...
