Eastside Road, January 19, 2015—NOTHING FANCY TONIGHT: we're content with what you might call icebox pottage, thises and thats from small containers in the refrigerator. This always puts me in mind of the hilarious story that opens Ruth Reichl's memoir Tender at the Bone, about her parents — you can read it here — but that is really unfair to Cook, who is resourceful and frugal but also a damn good cook.
The soup was thick, complex, hearty, and assertive, calmed down with its sprinkle of chopped parsley. Afterward, a little cheese, and a green salad; the last of Thérèse's delicious pan pepato, and a tangerine.
