What's for Dinner, Dude?
But What's for Dinner?
And yet there's always "What's for dinner" to connect us. Gabe willingly tries new foods now and scours cookbooks for recipes that sound intriguing. Not long ago he suggested we make panzanella, that classic Italian bread salad that celebrates the best of summer's tomatoes, and we jazzed it up with mozzarella, red peppers, and lemon cucumbers. He was in charge of the dressing and kept insisting it needed more balsamic vinegar. He was right, of course.
My hope is that Gabe and I will always share the pleasures of the table, even when we no longer sit down to dinner together every night.
