Eastside Road, Healdsburg, April 19, 2009—
FISH AGAIN TONIGHT, the fifth day running. Curt and Mary Jo were up from Berkeley, and brought with them a nice hunk of Arctic char. He grilled it on he Weber, over charcoal, after dredging it with a chop of myrtle, lavender, and calamondin peel, all from the garden. Mary Jo steamed some delicious snap peas; Curt and I fried potatoes, carrots, and garlic; I made the requisite green salad, using the first lettuce from our garden. Mary Jo's prunes in fenugreek, with spice cake, for dessert. A delicious meal on the patio, first of the year.
