Today was one of those long, lazy days. I was productive at work, but kind of felt lethargic, far away. I had every best intention to go to the gym. But, in the end, I gave in to the fact that today is in fact, a holiday. So, I used that as my best excuse to head home, hit my neighborhood market for some grapes and berries and cook an impromptu meal of spiced Pacific red snapper on a bed of lentils with mushrooms. There’s not much of a recipe to share here and it could probably use some tweaks, so I’ll save it for another day.
I still had some soup left over from a weekend batch and Sonoma olives from a stopover in Bi-rite. We indulged on cheese and wine the evening prior, so when I made my way into the kitchen, I decided to hold the cheese. And the wine. Instead, after a lovely meal, we sat over two cups of red Chai and spoonfuls of honey, enjoying a luxuriously quiet evening.
