Four Places I Would Rather Be Right Now
With the possible exception of: A cabin in the Santa Cruz mountains with all of my closest people and a well-stocked fridge.
Naw, not gonna tag anybody. But if you want to tag yourself, go right ahead….
That’s funny — I just told my students two days ago about Seven Storey Mountain.
wow, vegan brisket? got a recipe you don’t mind posting?
Take yer momma’s (or bubbe’s, or Aunt Esther’s) brisket recipe. Use chicken-style seitan (I like White Wave, but any brand will work) instead of meat, and put it all together, cook ’till the potatoes and carrots are done, usually 2-3 hours. And when everybody kvells (carnivores too) give me credit–I invented this shita, as far as I know…. 😉
I will never reveal my recipe (actually, mine is from Janet, my mother’s best friend), however. A girl’s gotta keep some things sacred.
Thanks for sharing, Danya. But Harry Potter???
Just kidding – and I will try to emulate you on the no-tv thing.
