SO, THEN, NOTHING COMPLICATED:
A can of sardines; a nice red onion quartered and sliced thin, a little olive oil on the bread, then the fish and onion.
A few slices of green tomato—will the summer never end? (Though it threatens to freeze tonight...)
Afterward, a few leaves of lettuce from a nearby garden, sprinkled with scallions sliced thin, oil, salt from the Ile de Ré, and some vinegar
a bottle of rosé
Thanksgiving can wait.
