On Sunday, Sandy and Craig came over and we watched a documentary "I Like Killing Flies" in which we learned a lot about life and became immediately enamored with the protagonist, restaurateur Kenny Shopsin of Shopsin's. An excellent welcome home. Buy his book "Eat Me" and let's all become regulars please.
Back to remodeling, now wishing I could hire the architect that Sarah from Saipua had to make my new place as magical too.
Dejectedly, took a lunch break (after about twenty minutes of looking at the mess) and architected this sandwich, of which I am quite proud, from whatever I could find. I toasted spelt bread, maneuvered some puréed garlic scapes with olive oil and sea salt (that I just so happen to have in a jar for such events as omelettes or the random pasta tossing), soft goat cheese from Consider Bardwell Farms, pineapple sage and sweet basil leaves and the only tomatoes to be picked from this rainy summer's doings, and for good measure a plopping of hummus. Topped it with some mint salt that Aran left here for us. Good lunch.
Next up: New Fall Collection will go up on website next week. Very exciting. End of Summer sale, a giveaway or two, all kinds of things I have in store for this beloved blog and my beloved friends. Now back to the studio.
