an indian dish.
a strawberry pineapple tart.
and… the american capitol?
that’s right. the environment has changed.
but cooking together hasn’t.
even after being separated for more than a year, the chemistry in the kitchen was still strong as usual.
even the weather, it seems, has stayed the same. each time you are together, it is rainy and cold.
unfortunately, your ex-coworker from france has a regular 9-5 job that keeps her busy.
coupled with the weather, this keeps you indoors in many of washington d.c.’s free museums.
you don’t mind.
because you’re always seeing something new.
but come five pm, you hurry back to the apartment.
because its tea time! time to talk. to laugh. to catch up on gossip.
to admire the sunset.
to make popovers.
with jam from the country house.
time to play with the “medium” sized dog.
who in fact comes up to everybody’s waist.
setting off fire alarms.
eating those popovers.
then, after a few days of that, the weekend is here. you both slip on your shoes and hop on a five hour bus ride north. to new york city.
you guys have got some french cats to herd.
