A Perfect Sunday Evening

The thoughts that come to me or other men when dining alone are, I suppose much stranger than men themselves. I have invented more than one peculiar platter when I felt I was unobserved and therefore free to concoct. However, my supper this Sunday evening needs no creativity.

I shall take half of a French Baguette – fresh this morning, a piece of Gorgonzola and an extra large dollop of Farmhouse  – according to the label – butter; the latter two succulent items were tempting me from the fridge.  I shall eat alone and unmolested at the kitchen table, pour myself a handsome glass of Tawny Port and think only egotistical thoughts.

    Why I believe that is perfect. I think I shall join you albeit on another continent with chicken, carrots and cauliflower stewed up with a glass of crisp Chardonnay. In each case i believe the company to be exceptional. Do enjoy!
