prep work.

Tomorrow night we're having dinner guests, so tonight we're roasting some things and making stock. It smells so good in here, I could die. I know everyone loves Summer's baker tat on her knuckles, but if I had to pick a food word to slap on my fingers, I'd be punching air with my MIRE POIX fists. Oh, holy food trinity- carrots, celery, onion. Nothing smells more like home.

it's true, you get those three going and it smells like that's all you need. forget the stew or soup or whatever you are building on the mire poix.

We have that same soup pot. We heart it.

I love cooking broth and the way it makes the house come alive.

I just love the smell of onions, carrots, celery simmering in olive oil! We started chicken n dumplins from scratch that way a few days ago. You can't GET goodness like that in a restaurant! :0)

Yes to the root veg trifecta! So homey. I could be standing in the kitchen just stirring them around in some butter feeling like Julia Freakin Child.

Ok, I've been reading your blog so much and I adore it!
But I have to ask - Where did you get those pots? I love them!
