Kitchen chaos. I snapped this picture yesterday while putting together last night's picnic.
The sumac, up front, was for the lamb meatballs. The onion went into the smoked trout pâté. The blue nail polish was bought on a whim, applied to toes, and promptly removed (anyone need blue nail polish? It's a very good blue but it makes me look like a dead person). The Lindt chocolate was because I thought I might make a little chocolate mousse to take to the picnic. I made a chocolate roulade instead, using cocoa powder. The scissors...oh, for cutting parchment paper for the roulade. Into the empty mason jar went some green olives with a marinade of lemon zest and garlic and thyme. I ate the cherries. The Noilly Prat is a permanent fixture for Vince's martinis. That's the weekend coffee pot lurking in the back. I use a smaller one just for me in the week. Kitchen paper. I can't live without kitchen paper.
Oh! Nasturtium leaves. For our crustless picnic sandwiches, with butter and the first cucumber from the roof.
The End. Again.
