tomato & avocado salad with parsley, basil, anchovies and a warm just-boiled egg.
(the simplicity and deliciousness cannot be overstated: pungently salty anchovies richly compliment sweet summer tomatoes, earthy parsley and spicy basil; the round flavors of egg & avocado obligingly call out for just a tad more salt to realize their vast potential. and the summation of a few fine ingredients is a very fine salad.)

a neighbor giving away coffee cans of vibrant basil plants (straight into the salad bowl!).

looking forward to a weekend with falafels and movies and summer pasta dishes for all.
