Another (the sixth, maybe? I’m gonna say the sixth) delicious chapter of meal-making with Mr. Mike L: Grilled Sourdough with Wild Mushrooms, Heirloom Tomato Salad, and Chevre; “Mikee’s Salad,” Miso-Roasted Asparagus Soba Noodle Salad, and failed Peanut Butter Banana Bonbons.
Though we typically have dinner together, Mikee invited me over for lunch at his house in Concord. As I pulled up to his driveway he was just getting up from picking some herbs out of the front yard, smiling as he waved hello.
It was HOT in Concord. Ninety-nine degrees or something like it, according to weather.com. The sun shone brightly (it was a little after 1p) and the air sort of just hung there.
We took about 30 more minutes to prep our “dishes” (mine were hastily found via the recipe blogs I follow), and voila!
Maybe it’s all the “First Day of Fall” talk, or the seemingly subtle upswing of cornbread on my newsfeed, but I couldn’t delay the making of this meal any longer:
Cause that’s how crazy I am for you / you’ve got me eating Tofurkey and beets
So goes the old (2012) adage (original song) of a man (Lenny) torn by his love of meat and love of a vegetarian (me!). :)
I decided to surprise Lenny for our 27th monthversary, which technically never happened in February because our anniversary is on the 30th. No matter.
On Sunday afternoon I had waiting for him a spread of Tofurkey pizza and beet salad. Both turned out better than I’d thought, and I was able to whip everything together in less than an hour!
