Sunday Morning Script Analysis

Reading and rereading the script for Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Developing the 'movie' in my head. Trying to draw all the disparate parts together to form some continuous flow. Steve Martin playfully violates the time-space continuum and then expects regular folks like us to just follow along. 'Along for the ride' is more like it.

Boneless Chuck roast has been slowly bubbling away in the oven since before 9:AM. Garlic, onion, salt, pepper and a flour rub then both sides seared. Then chopped onions and celery, caramelized. Nearly a quart of beef broth and a long slow oven. Pan gravy over fresh mashed spuds and butter-brown sugar glazed carrots round out the plate.

The last of the Columbian from the french press is still good cold. Probably will have to make another pot.
