Posts of the week - For our children's children.
Each week we pick three posts from the vast infinitely expanding blogosphere to highlight. Here's this week's crop in no particular order:

I. Evelyn at Surfeit of Lampreys demonstrates in a post on Spaetzle a procedure I use all the time. Evelyn has assembled a batch of recipes for the quintessential Swiss dish and is trying to work out just what makes a perfect spaetzle.

Next week - part two of the first part of the continuing saga that ran to fourteen parts on the second half of the first season of the first year of Posts of the Week.
Or maybe we'll just see you again soon.
