Hardly slept for thinking about tonight's dinner. Had it all planned out by the time I finally lost consciousness. Woke early and started the caramel while drinking coffee, then burned said caramel (forget the thermometer! trust your eyes and instincts!) and lost precious time dashing to Whole Foods to buy it readymade. Finished the pie, started on the squash and brussels sprouts, made the salad dressing and croutons, did the mushroom ragout, felt totally on top of my game. Then couldn't locate the fleur de sel we'd bought yesterday. Hubby to the rescue! I hadn't planned on that.
