Home again

Eastside Road, November 20, 2012—
FINALLY HOME AGAIN, after three weeks away. The principal meal of the day was on the road, though, and you see it in the photo: grilled sliced beef with cauliflower gratin, Brussels sprouts, mustard and horseradish: a fine meal on a looking-forward-to-winter afternoon. That left us wanting nothing more for dinner than a plate of steamed romanesco and some peanut butter on toasted raisin-nut-rye bread from Gayle's Bakery, whose bread we do indeed love.
