Josh's mom came to lunch yesterday. I have not talked to her since Josh and I broke up three years ago. She and I love each other dearly and my departure was hard for both of us. So it came as a surprise to receive her call. I was so excited! I bustled around the house in the morning, cleaning and straightening and hoping she would be impressed. We sat out back and caught up over fava beans with a little salt and pepper and grilled squash on a bed of basil and balsamic vinegar. Fresh cherries and white wine to cleanse the palette. A toast, "To health."
