    sounds like good noms at your house. I and my neighbor had great thick loin pork chops, mashed potatoes and pan jus, roasted Brussels sprouts, lingonberry preserves and the World's Best Apple Pie. I built a fire in the fireplace, the dogs settled on the couches, we all cozied with a quilt and had a lovely chat. All good. And all over.

      With that little tenderloin part, sounds like the rest was tasty. What are lingon berries?
      I've got a fire going now.

        a fire on an Oregon night. Heaven.

        Lingonberries are teeny-tiny relatives of cranberries that grow wild all across Scandinavia. They are not produced commercially but instead are gathered from company-claimed areas, mostly in Sweden. I buy jars by the half-dozen when I find them because you just bever know when you will run out. I prefer them to cranberries. They have a...scent and flavor that makes me long for something so deeply I almost cry.
