Ojai, California, October 10, 2013—
OF ALL THE MEAT that we do eat, as Virgil used to sing, the one that tickles our palate the most is lamb, lamb, lamb. Michael prepped it and Jim grilled it for Lisa's birthday, served woth citruses of course since Jim and Lisa are in that business. With it, continuing a vaguely Greek-centered theme, and all cooked by Michael: baba ganoush, Spanish rice, tzatziki. Green salad after, and cake, naturally, and Lindsey's ossi dei morti.
