Two Bombs = Tart

***** It's heartbreaking for Boston sports' fans: The Celtics, the NBA defending champions failed in their last "must win" situation against the Orlando Magic, and the Bruins (a team so much improved over a recent long history of inconsistencies in spite of heroic attempts) also flamed out, defeated by the Carolina Hurricanes, of all people. A hockey team in North Carolina. A half inch of ice on the roads down there closes schools and causes near panic amongst the citizenry. But they seem to have acquired much valuable knowledge about the slick surface since I lived in the area some twenty years ago. New Englanders are so deflated and the Spurrs certainly share in the disppointment. I baked a French Apple Tart* to cheer us up.

* I used Ina Garten's fabulous and easy receipe. And since the weather forecasters are telling us the temperature in Greater Downtown Stoneham will reach 90+ degrees on Thursday, I will refrain from baking until conditions return to more normal spring-like 70's.

News of the projected release date for the new CD on Arbors will be published here in the coming weeks. Legendary Bucky Pizzarelli plays guitar, Steve LaSpina's the bass player, and Ken Peplowski played his tenor and clarinet. Swingin' stuff.

Now to tend to my mini-deck garden.
