The only thing worse than running out of wine at a dinner party is having a bunch of half-drunk bottles leftover. Sure, you can drink them, but if you start happy hour at 2pm on a weekday, people are gonna judge you. Instead, use the wine to cook a meal! My Coq au Vin recipe sounds super-fancy, but that’s just because it’s French. So make this easy dish and let people judge you for mispronouncing the word Coq instead.
Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
