Lost and House. You would LOVE House. We have the first two seasons on DVD and it's one of my favorite shows.

Lost, well you would have to catch up, but it's my absolute favorite show. LOVE IT. But you would have to slog through at least the last season for it to make much sense, and every episode reveals just a tiny bit about the storyline.

Grays sucks now. Don't even bother.


HOUSE - I got hooked on an airplane when they showed 3 episodes back to back. Rented the first two seasons on dvd (never did that before) and love it for its writing.
BTW - I would also add Boston Legal -- another funny and very intelligent show. Aside from those, I stick to CNN.


For light fun and a few laughts, try the Old Adventures of New Christine with Julia Louis Dreyfuss.I think the new season starts in the next week or so. The new HBO show In Treatment starts next week with Gabriel Byrne as a shrink. I think it is on nightly. Also, rent Rescue Me, starring Dennis Leary(FX) and catch up. As a NYer, you will enjoy it. It more about relationships inside and outside the firehouse than putting out fires. Very well written.

PS - I'm looking forward to HBO's newest shoe: "In Treatment" - starts tomorrow (Monday) night at 9:30 - previews are glowing - stars Gabriel Byrne as a pscyhotherapist...

What I'm Reading

What I'm Cooking

  • Cheap Ceviche
    This is almost a mock ceviche because it's made with junk fish (tilapia) and surimi, the tofu of fish. However, with the right amounts of lime juice, cilantro, onion and hot sauce, even cheap fish makes a fabulous ceviche. I chopped up a 1/2 pound of tilapia and combined it with 2 packages of chunked surimi. Marinate in juice of 5 limes, 1/2 red onion chopped fine, and one head of cilantro chopped fine. Add a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce and refrigerate.
  • Collard Greens
    My CSA is sending us lots of green love in the form of collard greens. Here's my very delicious veggie-but-smoky recipe. In a large pot add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water. Nice pinch of salt, and 3/4 tsp. Spanish smoked Paprika. Add your chopped collards and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes.
  • Tzatziki Sauce
    Just outstanding on everything. Take a container of Greek style yogurt (no-fat, low -fat, doesn't matter). Grate 2-3 thin skinned middle eastern cukes on a box grater and squeeze out all the water. Mince 3 cloves of garlic VERY fine. Stir cucumber and garlic into yogurt, add a splash of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Dunk in vegetable of your choice, slather on spanakopitas, etc.
  • Polenta
    Apparently the par-boiled polenta I'm using is considered ca-ca by serious cooks. I've found it to be utterly delicious, especially smothered with sauteed portobello mushrooms. I will give plain old yellow cornmeal polenta a try after Thanksgiving.
  • Hangar Steak
    Grilled in a cast iron pan in the oven, on broil. Remarkably tender and so quick. Salt, pepper and smoked paprika for seasoning.
  • Brussels Sprouts + Corn
    A smashing combination -- the bitter tang of the Brussels Sprouts with the sweetness of corn. Saute with olive oil, salt and pepper. C'est tout!
  • Stuffed Cabbage
    My favorite recipe From the NY Times Jewish Cookbook, made with fresh cranberries and canned cranberry sauce. Total yum.
