Jody and I had a great time on our recent trip to Oswego. There was a ton of snow, which always cheers me up. We ordered food from Cananle's, had a beer at Greene's, had a beer at King Arthur's, bought books at the River's End, and visited Mrs. Morrison, among other traditional Oswego activities. Audrey accompanied us and she loved exploring the house.

First Stew

Neilson and I had a little dinner party, in honor of a visit of one of his best friends from college who was visiting from Chicago. I used the occasion to break in my new Le Creuset dutch oven, a very generous gift from my parents for Christmas. I made this balsamic beef stew recipe from the Williams-Sonoma cookbook Simple Suppers. It was a bit hit, if I do say so myself.
