I went round to see my friend Catie yesterday, to update her Mac system software and make it play nice with her eyePhone. While I was busy pressing buttons and waiting for firmware updates, Catie bought some salad ingredients for a lunch al fresco.
We had (left to right) a basil, mozzarella and tomato salad, hummus, pimientos (roasted, peeled red peppers), dolcelatte cheese, radishes, Spanish olives, fake caviar and live lettuce, which we snipped off with scissors. The sourdough baguette from the e5 Bakehouse in London Fields was excellent. We rubbed garlic into the bread, then tomato and drizzled olive oil over the top, to make pan con tomate.
We ate in the shaded courtyard – just past the far side of the table, the sun beat down relentlessly – it was about 28ºC and humid.
Drink: bottled water – I know, not like me at all!
