summer

IMG_20130530_112253 I’ve been gingerly getting ready for summer.

Summer! Long evening walks. Wistfulness.

A recent load of summer provisions included firm-skinned pattypan squash, cluster tomatoes, the richest, cream-colored fresh mozzarella, Easy Tiger pain au levain, blueberries, purple basil, green beans.

The squash was roasted until caramelized, near-melting, with a couple of the tomatoes.
The green beans were boiled with garlic and new potatoes until tender, the lot smashed lightly together with olive oil and salt & pepper. This dish is summer. Perfect in its fresh-faced simplicity, and wonderful eaten cold.

All is in readiness. I am ready to throw myself into the long, bright, lonesome days.
