Eastside Road, April 27, 2010—WE'RE DEFINITIVELY HOME at last, to remain home and eat at home five consecutive nights. Good thing, too, as I've gained a bit of weight, and the month of May in Italy will likely do further damage. Tonight, then, we supped on split pea soup: Lindsey cooked the peas in water, flavored them with salt and pepper, sautéed onion, garlic, and marjoram, bay, and lemon thyme from the garden, and it made a nice thick potage on a rather dreary day. Then, chard from the garden, with (in my plate, not hers) a teeny bit of pork rillette, since I'd done my exercises today.
