I can’t post pictures – happens too often with Blogger and it is soooo irritating! I took some cool ones (I think) of family, friends, and food while in EH… Damn! I’ve been messing around with that all day instead of writing a new post. (That and unpacking, doing laundry, and running errands…) But here I am, arrived home yesterday, safe and sound, absolutely no problem maneuvering through La Guardia. In fact, the only nerve-wracking part of the trip was our cab-ride here from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, in a barely held-together minivan driven by a kinda crazy Russian, gesticulating at other drivers while yelling stewpid! stewpid! I was very glad to be in the house, drinking a cold glass of water, looking out over the pool, and experiencing that most wonderful of feelings – home, home, it is good to be home. Home!
Last night, an over-easy egg, piece of toast, half-glass of wine, a peach that had seen better days, and into bed. Just like that. Today, after a run to the store, I made egg salad with anchovies (inspired by my brother-in-law Tom, who made the same for us in EH, although here is eating a mound o’guacamole at the beach, mmm…) to have on hand for a quick sandwich or salad with tomatoes. And for dinner tonight, grilled eggplant and polenta, topped with a tomato-anchovy sauce. (Recipes posted in comments, below.) Light but filling. Hit the spot. After all my not! moderate indulgences in EH, it’s time for this girl to depuff, to pare things down, to get back to (delicious!) fruit and veggies. Bit more water, bit (!) less wine. Are you, like I, absolutely starving on the first day back from vacation? As I try to cut back, my body is like some spoiled brat screaming, noooooo! I don’t want to! Sigh…
