i love central park.
o and i stopped by his parents place and were lucky enough to sneak into their adult picnic in the park with the domes (cornwall family friends). they set up a lovely white table cloth on the picnic tables just north of the sheep’s meadow. nancy made this delicious starter with boquerones, butter and avocado on top of a thinly sliced dark multigrain.
yesterday: last breath of french baguette, a couple of slices of saucisson sec, and a couple of slices with beurre d’isgny butter and fleur de sel topped with little chive flowers from my fire escape garden, chorizo, onions and eggbeaters (gabi left them in my fridge), i have to admit the chorizo was tasty enough that i didn’t even notice. tomato, cheese and bread for lunch, boquerones, various quiches (zucchini and broccoli/cheddar), tuna salad with dill and cranberry, white wine, fruit salad and la duree macarons, morroccan mint tea… cheese and bread with dried pears at mia’s.
today: chorizo, onions and eggbeaters (had to finish it!), shrimp grits with bacon, stumptown coffee, shared sticky bun at peel’s, picnic: longanisa, pancit, lumpiang shanghai, bonchon chicken, little sesame dumplings, watermelon balls, cosmopolitans? mark bittman’s chicken under a brick – i will swear by this method from now on with a salad and shallot vinaigrette.
