Worth Quoting

"A New Englander answers one question with another."

Notes from my Backporch...

Writer Susan Cava is a Mahattanite who just can’t afford a summer share in
the Hamptons...but she has an idea for those urbanites who need a fabulous
(but inexpensive) weekend away.  Rent a car, pack an overnight bag and head
north to Manchester Village, Vermont, a little town that she believes is "
of New England's greatest overnight getaways."

This Week's Recipe:
Chicken Thighs with Green Olives & Shallots
This recipe came from a night when we had chicken thighs in the refrigerator
and wanted a quick dinner with a Mediterranean taste. I remembered a
chicken dish in southern France which had a wine sauce and green olives. We
had some large imported green olives so it was easy to come up with a
similar version.
