D cooked two dinners tonight and served one. The served one is leek and sorrel soup from Georgeanne Brennan’s Potager, one of our favorite cookbooks.
The sorrel in the garden was looking enthusiastic, so I suggested it was time for this soup, and D agreed. He bought the requisite Yukon Gold potatoes and leeks, and got the chives from the garden. He used a can of Swanson’s chicken broth, which we like, as the stock.
We had the last of the Acme sourdough batard, and a nice Bordeaux Superieur, probably from Trader Joe’s, called Chateau Haut-Sorrilon (2010). Good dinner.
Here’s another table pic I liked:
D also made lunch today – a salad based on romaine, with more of the cannellini beans, olives, and shaved pecorino Romano, and a dressing of olive oil and lemon. We had the last 1/4 of the liter of Urbano Cellars Fourth Street Red, which is a tasty wine.
