It’s about this time of year – every year, when the great outdoors are more gray than great – that the draws of food and comfort really start chipping away at our new year’s resolutions. In other words, it’s foggy, and I want shepherd’s pie. Yes, the weather continues telling us to hibernate, so we do.

My 79-year-old dad, Cy, said to me many years ago, “Don, eat to live, don’t live to eat.” I know that he didn’t come up with the quote, and I thought it was funny at the time. But as I continue to work in journalism as a features editor, and in that realm cover food, the quote has flipped for me.

Lime Jell-O with cheese? Assorted Oscar Mayer meats and wieners fashioned into Christmas ornaments and affixed to a Styrofoam tree?
I was intrigued last month to see on social media news of a limited release of something called Really Good Boxed Wine. It was 2019 pinot noir from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County priced at $65. At first blush, that sounds ridiculous, but it amounts to $16.25 a bottle, a very fair (even cheap) price.
The Steam Plant Restaurant & Brewpub completed a major renovation in 2017, making the downtown location a cool must-see. So when Jerry Dicker purchased the building, which had closed during the pandemic, from Avista Corp. in May, there was little to update structurally. Dicker talked with The Spokesman-Review.
PARIS – Harry’s Bar in Paris is celebrating the 100th birthday of the Bloody Mary, the vodka-tomato juice cocktail believed to have been invented at the iconic watering hole in 1921.

Let us now praise the virtues of soup: There's no better food for this time of year, holiday cookies notwithstanding. A bubbling pot is the best antidote to the outer chill.
