The last two nights have felt a lot like summer, so we’ve been eating as such. Yesterday a friend gave me several gorgeous heirloom tomatoes—the first of the season. So last night we made tomato sandwiches, simply sliced tomatoes on lightly toasted multigrain bread from La Boulangerie with a little mayo, sprinkled with fresh thyme and crumbled feta. Heaven.
The previous evening we grilled up a couple slices of bread as well as yellow, red and orange bell peppers, asparagus and large spring onions, which we tossed with olive oil and fresh chopped chives. We washed it all down with cold, cold glasses of pale coppery pink rosé from Spain and stayed outside talking late into the night. Our first taste of summer and how sweet it is.
