windows wide

September 10, 2010

On a day like today, cooking is not necessary.

What is necessary is throwing open all the windows wide, and letting the sunlight blow in with the crackling fresh breeze. Noting that amongst all that green, a leaf or three has faded to gold.

I’m ready.

Ready for a blaze of color, nubby worn sweaters, puffed down vests, and a good hearty braise. For firewood, a dark pungent stout, and brisk morning walks that flush my cheeks.

But for this perfect moment, today, I’m content with a rummage and rumple about in the kitchen, and breakfast of apple, bleu d’auvergne, and baguette.

Happy Friday.

    I love how you refuse the predictable granola, toast, muffin, oatmeal or eggy breakfast. Who else would think to start the day with a veiny bleu fromage?! I don’t think I’m courageous enough myself to be so completely imaginative and iconoclastic. Your unique take on morning is a breath of fresh air in and of itself!

    I need a breakfast like this today. It is already 10:30 AM and I’ve busied myself here and there since waking. I haven’t even had coffee. Apple, bleu d’auvergne, and baguette, where are you? Why aren’t you in my kitchen?
