D made a wonderfully tasty bean soup from a recipe by Patricia Wells, in Trattoria.
D cooked all of the above last night, so he didn’t have to come home early from work to do it today.
He tried a new wine from the Bowl, which I thought was interesting and good. It wanted breathing, but most wines under $10 want something. This one was remarkable for having the worst-pouring bottle we’ve had in recent memory. Not a major deal, except it’s such a waste to have wine pouring itself all over the island tiles.
Also had a nice new bread that D made and started to bake. I took it out of the oven about 11pm last night. Always sad when bread is made when it is not needed immediately b/c it is so good fresh. It was good tonight, too, of course.
