La Musette has come and gone. We fed about 120 people in 3 nights, 720 plates in all. Yet I still managed to end up with 8 quarts of leftover pickled beets. As a reward, I bought myself a new camera: a Canon S90--as far as I can tell, THE point and shoot for food photography. I have yet to read the user's manual, but here's what I'm doing with my tuesday night:
The recipe is pretty basic: equal parts white wine vinegar and water, salt and sugar. And some onions. To the jars I added some bay leaf, peppercorns and coriander and caraway seeds. Guess I've taken care of my Christmas list.

  1. I stumbled upon your wonderful blog today. It makes me sorry that I never got a chance to visit the "Half and Half". I would have enjoyed eating flufer nutter sandwiches, drinking coffe,
    and enjoying other refreshing beverages.

    I forwarded to your site to my sister, a daughter and a couple of select friends.
