    Ummmmmm......

    Ok, they redid that whole floor, right? And Scott does things right. So, I'm going to say that of course they got a new bed.

    Right?

    Sounds good to me.

    Overdosing on morels, asparagus, cepes, fava beans
    and artichokes this spring.


    Same here, but no cepes. We are also eating tons of wonderful local strawberries.

    Had a lovely Chinon rose last night with dinner.

    Salad greens from my garden: rocket, regular arugula (small difference between the two), leaf lettuce, chinese lettuce, mizuna, and spinach.

    The peaches and strawberries from the market are becoming sweet, juicy, and heady in aroma.

    If there is list of things better than a ripe mango, it is a very, very short list.

    Bottarga. Slices with a Pastis. Shaved on top of simple pasta or a salad. [​IMG]

    Train of consciousness: a few weeks ago, a "gift from the kitchen" Chef sent out was basically fancy shoyu eggs (soy glazed quail eggs). Mrs. Piob looks at me and says, "I told you this was the proper way to eat eggs." [​IMG]

    Indeed. It's right by the gelatto shop you know. [​IMG]

    The tomatoes I have coming in on the vine right now. I have 12 plants and 8 different varieties. Can't wait.

    Whatever beverage I buy to drink tonight while I relax. Food as of late has been very simple with a 2 week and 2 year old in the house. But that doesn't mean the booze has to suck. Despite it being in the 90's here in the Lou, I'm thinking maybe a red. I'm feeling it...

    I actually ate my first mango the other day. They were having a great sale at the store so I bought a few. They are delicious. I was very surprised to tase a kind of faint piney/resinous flavor to them.

    Yes, he has something called a "volcanic textured" finish in several colors that does not have the tiles. I think that the exterior is done is a similar way and but then sanded down into a smooth surface.
