Potato, olive oil, salt; green beans; "Piemontese" sausage; green salad
THERE'S NOTHING MUCH SIMPLER: scrub a baking potato (russet, organic); slit it with a knife; bake it until it's done.
Some like butter or bits of bacon or sour cream. I like simply a pinching of sea salt and a generous drizzle of olive oil.
With it tonight, green beans from the market, simply cooked in the water they were rinsed it, with a bit of salt; and those delicious loose Italian sausages also from the market with of all things potato in them, which makes them "Piemontese," because potatoes signify the mountains. The usual salad.
