Peasant Food

I'm a movie soundtrack junkie. 
Today I have been listening to Everything Is Illuminated
which is a fabulous movie by the way.
I love the music of Gogol Bordello and Csokolom
 It makes me think of my husband who always has his nose 
buried in a book about Russian history.
 No novels for him. His world is cold borscht and gulags. 
When I told him I was drinking hot water with lemon to keep warm, 
he aptly named my drink a gulag americano.
I can do without the gulags, but I love the beets.

Love Gogol Bordello, and borscht, althought this time of year you need to do hot cabbage borscht. Keep up the great work!
