Neighbors, friends

Eastside Road, —
THE ONLY THING BETTER than eating every day is eating ordinarily with friends and family. This was one of those evenings. We took a sirloin roast from our son's Highland steer, a few bottles of wine, and a bowl of mulberries down the hill to our neighors — who are, in fact, our daughter and son-in-law. There too were a couple of friends visiting from the Netherlands.

So, for dinner, first, Padrones peppers, quick-fried in olive oil and salt; then the serious dinner: aïoli with green beans, peppers, and tomatoes; salmon from Alaska; the sirloin from Paolo (both of those grilled over charcoal). No bread! No green salad! We'll manage, I'm sure.
