Smoked Cherries

This week I put a small stovetop smoker in my Amazon shopping cart. I'm hoping this obsession will pass before I actually order the damn thing but the fact that I went so far as to look for it is a testament to the amazing smoked cherries in a port wine sauce that Phoebe's serves with a seared duck breast on fried polenta accompanied by some lovely crimini mushrooms and their signature sprouts.

To further demonstrate how crazy I am about these cherries, this dish, on Tuesday I dined alone to have it for the second time before I saw "Lookingglass Alice", also alone.

Apparently I'm also currently preoccupied with Alice. Last Friday I did indeed go by myself to see the first showing of 3D "Alice in Wonderland" and enjoyed every minute of it.
