Celery Soup

WEDNESDAY Jane Grigson’s Celery Soup  |  Buffalo Chicken Wings It is just about 5:30pm on a very wet Friday evening.  Rain…glorious rain…has been coming down, steadily, for hours.  Not a shower, mind you, but a thoroughly soaking rain streaming down from a sky the color of battleship gray.  It has eluded us for months, this Continue reading → «Celery Soup»
