Please excuse a little more than a week without posts–we’re heading out tomorrow for a long-anticipated trip to the French countryside, courtesy of a very generous family friend who is letting us stay at his house in Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. The weather is forecast to be chilly and damp for pretty much our entire stay, but that will make the delicious stews, roasts, and, of course, wine taste all the better. We’ll post photos and a recap once we return.
