5 Senses Tour, #1

watching: this episode of Wallander (from the subtitled Swedish version, not the Kenneth Branagh series, which I haven't seen yet). Perfectly atmospheric on a foggy, chilly day.

tasting: the hint of balsamic vinegar, which makes such a difference in this wonderful lentil soup.

listening to: Stan Getz and Bill Evans, on Verve in the '60s. Ideal in the evenings.

touching: the silky hair of my adorable canine companion, who loves sitting in my lap when I turn on (and sit under) our Japanese heater table (kotatsu).

smelling: rosemary I dried for a week or so and then stripped off the branches and placed in a small jar. Such an energizing aroma!

Yes, I've finally remembered to participate in Monica's 5 Senses Tour this week!

how nice to have gathered and dried all that rosemary. i always do, and then rarely use it!

i've yet to try vinegar in cooking (other than salad i mean). i'm going to have to rectify that.

off to hear that music.

I also enjoyed "Wallender," though I watched the Kenneth Branagh version. Balsamic vinegar in lentil soup, what a great idea. I just made a big pot of lentil soup over the weekend, from "Barefoot Contessa" cookbook. It was delicious, and I added some red wine at the end. Great blogpost!
