I dreamt of this last night. It made me want to travel. The mere thought of Dorie Greenspan's recipe reminds me of relaxing meals that wind down a week in the most satisfying of ways. The meals that make you feel like you are on vacation. A glass of wine and a dish of something special that needs no accompaniments.
Perhaps some music, blazing fire or brilliant sunset create an atmosphere. Some times the cooking is the ambience. Whatever it is you are transported from the daily grind.
When I ventured up to Pekarski's for the chorizo I thought of the many such meals I have had the pleasure to share. It caused me to add to my resolutions list - Always end the week, don't bring it home, don't share. It will be waiting right where I left it on Monday. You may be saying, "nice sentiment" - but I do believe a meal like this can make it happen.
