Supper for two, six years later


I grilled some pork chops with preserved Meyer lemons last night, and plenty of rosemary from the pot on the roof, and garlic. As they cooled, I dressed them with extra preserved lemon, fresh lemon juice, and olive oil. Then they were sliced, and eaten at roof temperature. Really, really good... I served them with fresh figs.


As I wandered in Prospect Park yesterday, doing some reconnaissance for tomorrow's foraging walk for the BBG, it occurred to me that I wanted to eat a sweetish yet spicy carrot salad for supper. So at home I cooked some carrots cut into half moons, and then added them to sauteed garlic, toasted coriander, powdered ginger, and a spoonful of chestnut honey. Finished that all with lemon juice, sliced hot green chiles, lots of mint form the terrace, and olive oil. It was wonderful.


The stressed Iceberg is doing a little better and has put out a tentative second flush.


The sky was beautiful.


Vince just reminded me that six years ago today, I left a comment on his blog.

Which reminded me that things could be a lot worse.
