How to Greet Your Guests
When we arrived in Pittsburgh, around 9pm, we were in serious need of a late supper before going to bed. Luckily, we were staying with Dan's parents, who are great hosts under pressure -- especially when it comes to food. Together, we made a lovely late night meal.
I'd brought a few "CSA leftovers" -- cherries, carrots, and radishes -- with me on the plane, so those were easy to wash and plate. I didn't even peel the carrots; they were that fresh and good.
To this, Jim and Martha added juicy tomatoes with basil and mozzarella, as well as sliced bread.
Dan had also picked up some mortadella in Brooklyn, which added to the repast. It turns out cured meat can be a good host/hostess gift if you don't have too far to travel.
P.S. Don't overlook my open-faced radish and butter sandwich. It was simply delicious.
