After a Saturday of doing flowers for everyone else's dinner parties there was just one I wanted to attend. On a terrace in Brooklyn with Marie and Vince and this steak.
But since we weren't invited to partake we dug around in the fridge and made grilled cheese and ham sandwiches. We rubbed the bread with olive oil instead of butter and liberally sprinkled them with fresh herbs. We used a thick slices of mozzarella cheese, honey baked ham and a few thinly sliced gherkins. We had a comforting salad of butter lettuce dressed with our go to viniaigrette. 3 to 1 baby, olive oil to basalmic vinegar, salt and pepper. It can get fancier, dijon mustard for instance or fresh herbs, but it doesn't have to.
We fed the cat, we fed the dog, we fed ourselves. Appetites appeased we relax and wait. We've got the calliparca berries, they're got the beef. I think we're ready to make a deal...
