Tuesday Morning, November 28

1) From a dream last night (whatever it was) I came away with a menu item, "salade roué." Waking, I thought, "What the hell is that? Spicy, wilted greens with an oily dressing?" Searching the internet, there appears to be no such thing (which I guess is good), though there's a "salade en forme de roue" and a "salade en roue au fromage bleu."

1a) Which just goes to show, it all depends on how you accent something.

2) Today, November 28, is not only the anniversary of Truman Capote's Black and White Ball, it is also the 75th anniversary of the devastating Cocoanut Grove Fire right here in Boston. Tonight I'm going to a Boston Public Library event with author Stephanie Schorow to commemorate it.

3) I haven't even bought my Christmas cards yet.
