Another in a series of strange dreams

In my dream, I was looking for LPs by Wentzle Ruml, perhaps as a gift, and I went to About Music in the now-burned Wilder Building in Brattleboro, VT. The guy at the store said that, even though tons of water from the firemen's efforts had ruined most of the stock, his Wentzle Ruml albums were still in super shape, because they were just great product. I looked through them--one was a shiny black box-type album, the kind that holds 2 or 3 records that are oddly numbered so that when you stack them on one of those tall-spindle record players the sides will play in the right order. I seem to recall that the talented W.R. was on the cover in a sort of stylized embossed design, just him at the piano caught in simple lines like he was live at Montreux or something. A bit of an odd dream seeing as 1. I think About Music is closed now, 2. I am not aware of Wentzle Ruml having any sort of musical career. I enjoy imagining it though.

Great Saxe

My low-grade interest in the Marechal de Saxe, who lived from 1696-1750, has suddenly flared up into a fever of web-searching. I found the following brief tidbits at an infoplease entry for Saxe:

Saxe, Maurice, comte de, marshal of France, one of the greatest generals of his age. He was the illegitimate son of August II of Poland and Saxony. When very young he entered the Saxon army, and in 1720 he went into French service. In 1726 he obtained leave to make good his claim to the duchy of Courland, but in 1727 the attempt failed. He fought under the duke of Berwick in the War of the Polish Succession. In the War of the Austrian Succession, he led the successful attack on Prague (1741) and later, after becoming (1744) marshal, made his reputation by victories at Fontenoy (1745) and Raucoux (1746) and by the capture of Maastricht (1748). In recognition of his services Louis XV gave him life tenure of the castle of Chambord and (1747) the title of marshal general. His Mes Rêveries (1757) is a remarkable work on the art of war. Maurice de Saxe was notorious for his amorous exploits and for his tragic liaison with Adrienne Lecouvreur. Among his descendants was George Sand. L. H. Thornton has translated (1944) Mes Rêveries.

Other searches reveal titillating mentions of Saxe in the memoirs of Casanova, check out these 2 e-book pages: casanova 1, casanova 2.

Apparently his mistress, the actress Lecouvreur, was poisoned by a rival named Bouillon. Later, an opera was written about her. And how cool is the George Sand connection?

Gilfeather turnip soup with sea-legs

I invented this based on a bitchin' soup I tasted a couple years ago at the 4 Columns Inn in Newfane, VT. My ad hoc recipe, featuring the legendary Gilfeather Turnip (check this link for word on a movie about this heirloom vegetable, that's how much we love it in Vermont:
). I bought the turnip at the local Farmer's Market on Saturday and it really was as big as my head. Turns out I could only fit about half of it in my largest soup pot.

1 chopped onion
1 T olive oil or butter
1 box chicken broth
4 cups cubed Gilfeather turnip
2 cups cubed potato (I used a waxy one to add more texture to the soup)
1 cup cubed yellow carrot (found this at Walker Farm, the light color means the soup has carrot sweetness but not carrot color)
1 bay leaf
1 6 oz. can of lump crab meat (or fresh if you can get it)
salt to taste

Saute the onion in the butter or oil until it starts to look glassy. Then add the broth, root vegetables and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer for about an hour or until turnip pieces are soft (the potato and carrot may not be so soft, that's OK). The soup pot I used was larger than my (electric) stove element, so I used a heat disperser to keep everything cookin' and avoid burning food to the bottom of the pan. (This technique also works really well for brown rice.)

Allow the soup to cool (perhaps overnight in the fridge). To finish soup, mash up the root chunks with a masher or slotted spoon. Bring back to a simmer and add water for desired consistency. Add the crab meat and stir in so it starts to break up and flavor the whole soup. Marry flavors by simmering everything for another 10 minutes or so, then salt & serve! For someone who isn't a huge fan of vegetable tastes, I thought this soup was pretty delicious!

The least of it

Of the many, many loud and ANGRY and apologetic (to the rest of the world) things I have to say about what happened in this country in the past 24 hours, here's just one: Bush was not RE-elected. This is not a RE-election win. This is the FIRST time he's been elected. And THAT is even worse. WHO elected this person after everything that's gone down in the past 4 years? What are we going to do for the NEXT 4 years? I feel like Lewis Black today in that I can't help SHOUTING.

Your website, madame

I've been going through a little Madame de Pompadour obsession lately (I know, who hasn't?) and was toying with the idea of recreating some denominator of a 44-course meal she hosted on November 4, 1747. Since I didn't have my Nancy Mitford biography on me, I tried finding the menu online. Thanks to Google I not only found it (in French & Italian), but there is an entire Madame de Pompadour website to play with. There goes my lunch hour--huzzah!

With an old fashioned hug, Prof. K.

Lunchtime flu thoughts

Since herbalism and conspiracy theory are a big part of my family life, here are my thoughts on the flu shot shortage this year.

It seems to me like a really crazy ad-campaign: "These are great, get them every year... oh wait, never mind." I only started hearing about flu shots 6 years ago, and was surprised that grown adults were encouraged to get shots at their local drug store on an annual basis. Sounded like a scam to me... much like the theory that putting fluoride in drinking water is a handy way to get rid of fluoride, actually a toxic substance. But with shots, people actually have the stuff injected voluntarily! What is it exactly? Concocted from strains of last year's defunct flu? Then this year, with flu shots limited, the CDC is trying to assure the same flu-shot-happy masses that only "high risk" people need the shots. But it's too damn late, we're trained to get the shots every year and begorrah, we're going to get them! So what if I'm over 2!

Here's where herbalism comes in. Nature has already made a powerful and tasty flu-fighter, called the elderberry. Ask your local herbalist or health-food store about elderberry and give yourself a break from shots. Heck, someone told me the FDA is thinking of regulating elderberry, so that means it must be good.

David Crosby puts it nicely:
Say, can I have some of your purple berries

Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven't got sick once
Prob'ly keep us both alive
