Simple Things


Last night I made some delicious italian panzanella from Everyday Food. It is what it looks like– cannellini beans, red onions, cucumbers, tomatoes (I substituted cherry tomatoes- which I almost always do– because they are just so good!), fresh mozzarella (another sub), olive oil, pepper, and  red wine vinegar. I added the bread and olive oil/vinegar this morning so it wouldn’t get too squishy before lunch. It was a feat of strength to not eat this last night– all the fresh smells were so enticing, and it is so simple. This is what my brother would call an assembly meal. Thanks to Shawnee for the heads up on the recipie. I subscribe to the mag, but hadn’t had a chance to sit down with it.


And here’s another little moment of beauty from the sidewalk. We don’t have tons of trees where I live, but I do have these lovely roses that are planted in the mini gardens outside of the buildings on my block. I always see people stopping to peep at flowers from my window. Thank you to Sanda, my super’s wife, who plants them each year.

    You were listed on my site and... thank goodness! I love panzanella but rarely make it. I now know where to find the perfect bread within three miles or so.
    Simple things, simple and honest and fresh foods are what I do at and I hope you and your followers will check out my cookbook recommendations, stories, recipes et al. Thanks for doing what you do! Dee

    it is really so good, and so simple!! i order the magazine solely so i can think about food once in a while. my usual meals are how-do-you-say....not blogworthy!

  • oh, that rose is lovely. i love panzanella, but never think about making it. i guess i should get out my everyday food and give it a go.
