vegetables

  • asparagus with eggs and za'atar ( Zaitoun , 57)
    • shouldn't take long to cook
  • roast romanesco cauliflower with tahini and pomegranates ( Zaitoun , 78)
    • could be made ahead

proteins

  • Safavid-style beef pastries ( Persiana , 38)
    • easy with puff pastry
  • lahmacun ("turkish pizzas"; Persiana , 45) -
    • requires making dough (perhaps AR's sour cream dough would be easy?)
    • maybe better for own meal
  • hummus with spiced lamb ( Zaitoun , 25) -
    • marinate the lamb for an hour; cooks fast...

quiet memories that i treasure

  • laying with Daph in the grass in the spring, in my green hoodie
  • standing on the terrace behind the art museum at night with D, watching the glittering lights on the river, smelling the fresh air
  • people-watching with C on the steps of the duomo in Florence
  • reading on the old leather couch in our canal apartment, sunlight streaming in and listening to piano music Alexandra Strelisky
  • eating cacio e pepe with a glass of local Riesling in the courtyard of the Church of St. James in Brno
  • swimming at Chryssi during my lunch break, eating a PB&J in the water
  • Christmas mornings as a kid with my family, eating opera fudge and cookies for breakfast and opening presents on the living...
