The perfect Sunday meal
With the onslaught of gray, rainy days, a hearty Sunday lunch was in order. Roni came over yesterday for a little girl chat and catch-up, while my fiance brewed his first batch of home-brewed beer.
The rain continued its steady drip. Most of the city stayed home. Out came a great meal because when it's gloomy, eat as the Italians would, right?
Prosciutto, Fleur Verte (cheese), kalamata olives, fresh sourdough bread, hummus, tomatoes and cucumbers marinated in balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and finally, pineapple. It was delicious. Restraint was tough but being that it was Sunday and a lazy day, no guilt was involved. In fact, it was just what the doctor ordered.
