Eastside Road, February 24, 2010 —
A SIMPLE DISH, made delicious by its ingredients and the know-how of the cook. (What else is there?) Lindsey fried some of that delicious Mangalitza bacon slowly in its own fat (then poured off and saved for later); then chopped a big onion in and slowly caramelized it; then four or five potatoes cut into chunks; then a bunch of kale. Cover and cook s-l-o-w-l-y.

This sounds & looks great on a rainy winter day. How slowly is s-l-o-w-l-y?
