Eastside Road, Healdsburg, July 20, 2009—
HUNGRY FOR VEGETABLES after a weekend largely without them. Lindsey obliged, as she generally does, tipping a nice big bowl of green beans, then barely cooking them and some thin-sliced white onion in olive oil with a little bit of salt.
In the meantime I'd gone out to the garden to get a head of romaine. The dressing: three anchovy fillets, rinsed of their packing oil and crushed with a clove of garlic, then the juice of half a lemon and enough olive oil to make it work.
