Oakland, Feb. 2, 2012— Dinner with a couple of friends tonight, at their home — (how clumsy our English language can be: no other way to say simply diner chez des amis, or bij vrienden) — and it was, delicious treat, rare roast beef and mashed potatoes and green beans in brown butter. I'd been hungering for beef for days, and here it was. Oh: dessert: a fine Linzertart, from Berkeley's Bread Garden bakery. How pleasurable these simple pleasures are!
