A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

What I Had for Lunch Today: Vegetable Plate

The other day I bought a great big cabbage so that I could make gołumbki.I parboiled it enough to get the outer leaves off so that I could stuff them, and now I've got the rest of a huge cabbage to eat up.

I hacked off a chunk this afternoon and sliced it thin.I tossed it in a hot spider with some oil, salt, pepper, scallions, and parsley, then added a spoonful of water, covered it, and let it cook down a bit. I microwaved a potato, and dressed it with butter and chives. I cut the kernels off an ear of corn and sautéed them with chopped red pepper, parsley, and cilantro. Peasant food, but good.
