Remember when I went to France? I miss it because of course I do.
Remember this perfect, rustic dinner? In Normandy? On a ? Consisting of local goods–baguette, cheese, charcuterie, and cider?
…Yeah. I miss that, too. This drink is kind of an homage to that dinner–rustic, smoky, hearty, apple-tart.
Remember when I told you why I’m not posting as much lately? (Short answer: work.)
Well. That’s still happening, but the end is in sight… If you can see 4 days ahead, which is impressive. I will soon be living, cooking, eating, posting (and showering) like a normal person.
(Joking about the not-showering part… Mostly. Gross.)
At some point commented on my current situation, wisely predicting an I-need-a-drank post from yours truly. She was right, and here it is!
Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I’ve been indulging in the sweet nectar that is booze as of late. In real life, I come home most days around 11, stare at the months-old beer in my fridge for a minute and decide I’d rather go to bed. Secretly being 83 years old does not help matters.
However, I made this one. For you, for me, and for us–because it’s beautiful, complex and tastes nothing like it looks.
