Here’s a thing to do for dinner.
Saute an onion. Add a few thinly sliced garlic cloves, and whatever Italiany spices you have in your cabinet. Basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, tarragon, sure. Add a drained can of cannellini beans, and when those are cooked, a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes. Toast a few thick slices of ciabatta bread - or grill them in your cast iron pan because you think you’re on Master Chef - and serve the bean tomato stuff on top of that. Dinner cooked bruschetta, more or less.
Stop at the cheese shop on your way home from the subway. You have a cheese shop on the way home from the subway now because you live in Brooklyn. Ask the woman there what cheese she’d recommend with the figs you bought yesterday at the street corner fruit stand. Buy gorgonzola and ricotta because you don’t know if the gorgonzola is too strong. Then buy a nine-dollar pot of linden flower honey because it’s that or the supermarket and you are enchanted with this little Brooklyn cheese shop. When the woman at the store asks you to come back and tell her how the cheese-and-figs goes, tell her you will.
