In need of a sudden substitute for high-quality quiche, I went with roast chicken, and made the cranberry sage sauce we normally use on meatloaf, but thickened more. It was REALLY good. And the salad was nice. I went just far enough out of my way today to make it to a store which sold good balsamic vinegar (we were out - too many nice recipes and salads call for it). And it's nice having L. back in town. She brought over a bottle of white (from her copious accumulations of party alcohol she keeps trying to be rid of) and we did some catchup from her month away.
And, although no one else 'needed' them at the end of the meal, I'm happy it's strawberry season.
(Overlooked work note: I now have buttons in my Sources Db which do clever things. Happy with them.)
