Oxtail stew. At Chris & Sirkka’s house, with such a rich variety of roots and leaves from their garden that I won’t bother to list it, all pressure cooked with wine for 45 minutes and served over polenta with fresh raw milk stirred in at the end (yes, from the same cow we get ours from.) We drank a 2003 Jaboulet Vaqueyras and a 2005 Langhe Nebbiolo by La Spinetta. Life is good, even in the harsh cold wind that knocked our power out for a bit this afternoon.
