I'm at my cabin on wheels for the week. I'm going to smoke a gifted Cohiba as I walk around the lake. Then I am going to bake some yellow fin tuna treats I found at the store. Then maybe I'll step out and watch the stars - they are remarkably bright away from the city.
I have been drinking spanish white wine all day and my girlfriend is making fried chicken, mashed taters, gravy, and rapini. I am not sure I want 2007 to end, but I am definitely looking forward to 2008.
I pulled the recipe for Coquilles Saint-Jacques with Champagne out of Anthony Bourdain's cookbook and followed the directions that he helpfully included. Those involve drinking the whole bottle of bubbly minus 1/2 cup.
