Straw and Hay from the Frugal Gourmet

If you want to celebrate simplicity around your table this time of year, you may like breaking bread with The Magi, The Camel and the Little Lamb.

I’m browsing “The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas.” Though I don’t own this cookbook (it’s currently on loan from the Austin Public Library) and never really knew much of author Jeff Smith before his death, the book offers a beautiful collection of recipes, each one anchored to a figure of the participants in his manger scene. Here’s a sample of Smith’s Straw and Hay recipe that we’re preparing at home this week:
