due to some unfortunate circumstances, i no longer have access to the complete "sopranos" on DVD. what's a girl to do? watch drea de matteo on "joey" instead? not an option.

i left tony and pussy and paulie and christophuh off mid season three. two boots video downstairs from me does not have season 3. that crappy blockbuster on houston has all seasons but 3. kim's on ave A has been closed for months now. to buy it will set me back at least $60 (and that's for a used one!) besides, once i finish 3, i'll need 4, then 5......

am considering trading my cable for a netflix subscription. i welcome your input on this verrrry important decision.

in the meantime, an italian recipe, which i stole then modified from someone else, and then served up to mara last weekend alongside olives, roasted balsamic eggplant and mozzarella panini:

brussel sprouts
ricotta salata
one lemon
olive oil
salt (obvi)

place cleaned and trimmed brussel sprouts in boiling water for 3 minutes or until bright green
remove and rinse under cold water
cut each sprout lengthwise, then slice into thin half moons
mix with the juice of one lemon and the zest from about half of it
cut the ricotta salata into small pieces
toss cheese, sprouts, lemon, one glug of oil
salt and pepper to taste
