 h1. Dear readers,

 We thought of Carl Dennis's poem "The Great Day" when we read Deborah Madison's latest column about what happened when her husband opened a bottle of really, really nice wine one Thursday night by accident. 

 "What if the great day never comes?" asks the poem. "What if the best china never seems called for, / Those dishes reserved for the friends you love the most / On the day they return from their endless travels?" 

 Here's to taking those special-occasion dishes from the cabinet and opening that prized bottle of wine. And if you're looking for something to serve on those dishes, with that wine, consider Frisée aux Lardons, a salad of poached egg and bacon on frisée lettuce; it's supremely tasteful in its simple goodness. 

  If the thought of poaching an egg petrifies you, don't worry; we've got step-by-step instructions on the site this week.
