The open-faced savory croissant at Boulted Bread is a thing of culinary beauty and taste.  Ricotta spread topped with roasted delicata squash and maple-caramelized onions.  I would list all the other yummies that this scratch bakery cranks out, but that would be the entire blog.

Ms. Swift has changed the drop date for the re-recording of Red to November 12th.  Looking forward to hearing what she does with “All Too Well,” a song that was originally ten minutes, cut to far fewer, and has reportedly been lengthened for the re-recording.  Storytelling Swift at her best.

Stacked these days:

The Giver of Stars, Jojo Moyes

The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson (begun earlier this year, pulled back in)

And speaking of storytelling, among the best stories I heard this week: My friend, let’s call her Jayne, who is 75 and fell — at age 70 – for the love of her life, after considerable, earlier-in-life heartache, for both she and her guy.  She told me with a solid, knowing smile that she’s the happiest she’s ever been.

Have a good week, peeps.
