The classic Herring Under a Fur Coat at Kachka, one of the delicious things I ate in the past couple of months.

Well, it’s been about two months since I last visited this little blog, and I sure didn’t mean to be absent for that long. Life took priority—estate work took a lot of my attention, but so did the emotional component of cancer recovery. I just didn’t have enough in me.
