Nothing fancy

Eastside Road, September 18, 2016—

THAT'S THE LAST time you'll see that dateline for a while: we'll perhaps fast tomorrow, either that or eat airplane food. And tonight we were simply catching up with leftovers — believe it or not, the last of the fusilli amatriciana, for me; but with a side course of Swiss chard. That's one of my very favorite vegetables, and it's always a regret, to me, that the Contessa is less fond of it than am I. I think it may have something to do with beet roots: she loves them; they are not at all to my personal taste. Swiss chard is pretty close to beet greens, and come to think of it I like beet greens, too, though not as much as chard. Perhaps who likes the leaf disdains the root, and vice versa.

In any case: Green salad afterward, and applesauce. See you at Marius…
