Salmon, of course

Eastside Road, —
LOOK: IT'S MARKET DAY IN Healdsburg, and it's summer: obviously we'll have salmon for dinner. We get it, as I've written here before, from Dave The Fish Guy, who actually fishes for the salmon off the Sonoma county coast, when he's not reading how-to books about writing fiction. Dave is in fact a very interesting guy, with backgrounds in areas you're more likely to be interested in than to know about: but that will have to wait for another day.

Drinks with padrones peppers from the francophiles of Chalk Hill. The salmon, broiled in the oven because I was too busy with other things, once again, to light a fire in the grill. Delicious broad beans from Nancy Skall's Middleton Gardens. Green salad from my own garden. I love Saturdays.
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Armento, 2009 (fresh, simple)
