Cold supper

Eastside Road, July 5, 2011—
TUESDAY: THE IDEA is to fast today, but something went wrong — maybe because yesterday was a holiday, and today seems like Monday. We went wrong at lunchtime, when L. insisted on celery stalks with peanut butter, which seems pretty déclassé to me, but there you are. Then she remembered a couple of slices of tri-tip from the other day were still in the ice-box, and then there was some of yesterday's glorious egg-potato salad left — such a fine, soft, rich, beautifully colored and textured dish that is. So maybe we'll have to put discipline off to tomorrow. Or maybe not.
