D got this dinner together before the City Council meeting, while I wrote a 90th birthday card to my uncle. Then we spent about 3 hours listening, and also speaking, at City Council. Love-hate – it’s a major pain to cut dinner short, sit and listen, get nervous and speak for 2 minutes trying actually to say something – but then it’s democracy in action, and that’s a wonderful thing.
We had a new brie that D bought at the Bowl called Delice Nostalgie, some very nice tiny apples, slices of fennel and a bit of cauliflower, some picholine olives, and the last of some Acme herb slab, toasted in the toaster oven (great!). We had one of our leftover wines with this, but only one glass so we would be good and linear to speak before the Council.
