Tapping the zeitgeist for once

I'm usually 5 years behind any trend (started blogging in 2008, joined Facebook 2 weeks ago), but I am totally out in front of the new cassoulet obsession... and while I've been extolling its virtues for years, Bittman and now Slate have all gotten aboard the cassoulet train. A pretty good article... though I don't know they had to make me feel like I'm crazy. That's not very nice. But cassoulet really is that good, that I find myself eying beans that cost $16.99 for 14 oz because it just might make it even better... and frankly, that's not normal... so fair enough... but at least I'm not alone, I guess?
