Words To Live By

My friend Sue in California sent me this great card for my birthday (which is today). I laughed so hard I just had to post it here.

The answer: Why, she'd stuff a capon and whip up a fabulous sauce.

The card is by Cara Scissoria in L.A. I've never heard of them, but there are some amusing cards on the web site.

We've been watching a lot of Julia (on DVD) lately. Especially the chicken episodes. Remember the Chicken Sisters? Miss Broiler, Miss Fryer, Miss Roaster, Miss Caponette, Miss Stewer, and Old Madame Hen! We got ourselves a nice poularde to roast on Christmas Day.

A poularde is an immature (not yet laying) hen that's been fattened up. Yum!

Happy Winter Solstice to all!

By the way, if you're looking for your Puppy Pic Of The Week, it's in the sidebar; this week's Image Of The Week. Change is our friend...


  1. Joyeux Anniversaire Cher Monsieur Walt.
    Enjoy your steak au poivre and the bubbly.

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, winter solstice baby!

  3. Je lève mon verre à votre santé. À la prochaine!

  4. Happy birthday and many happy returns!

  5. Happy Birthday, Walt!

    Your birthday comes on my second favorite day of the year (after the first Saturday in May which is KY derby day). I like the winter solstice since it means that every day will be longer from here on until the summer solstice arrives.

  6. Thanks to everyone for your good wishes. We wish you could all be here to share food and wine and fun.

    Now, as evelyn said, the days will start getting longer and we can look forward to spring.


Tell me what you think!
