I most decidedly have mixed feelings about it: the world feels like it’s a rougher place to be all the time, and I feel like, all things considered, I have it pretty good. So as we get closer and closer to Thanksgiving,
I want to pause to reflect on our good fortune (ironically, in the midst of a slew of emails about our poor fortune.) Whether someone dear to you is living, ducking their head, in a war-torn region, or hobbling through a natural disaster, or dealing with whatever ugly side effects there are to the way your loved one is dealing with the stress of it all, everyone is navigating a tricky route. Yet we seem to still have it pretty good over here.
I know I’ve been bellyaching about being short-handed for over a year now, and sure enough, neither of our two kitchen hires last week showed up, but one did show up today, and we’re still open, and we still managed to change our menu on time (though I neglected to change it on the website until this afternoon- apologies to the angry man who called a short while ago to complain about my neglect. It’s been rectified and you can see it now at the link below.)
We’re still getting our wine tastings set up,
and, eventually, I’m still getting these emails out to let you know what we’re up to.
We look forward to seeing you, and to any saute cooks who might come our way, preferably grownups.
Doug and all your grateful friends at Feast
