Lunch on the patio

Eastside Road, October 17, 2011—
tableleft.jpgtableright.jpgTHE WEATHER'S SO ODD, unseasonably warm and unnaturally humid, but we toughed it out on our patio, both today and yesterday, with a fine meal made for us by Sylvie and Jason, both of whom polished their culinary chops at the Chez Panisse program at the American Academy in Rome. That's Jason and Sylvie in the foreground, there at the left. What a fine menu!
green beans and cherry tomatoes
hard-cooked eggs
boiled potatoes
grilled bread
pan-seared tuna
green salad
aïoli, aïoli, aïoli

There were eighteen of us yesterday, and all with appetites. Today, though, even though there were eight of us at table, there was enough left from yesterday to have the entire feast over again. Don't think we don't know how lucky we are!
Rosés, of course
