…It is a miracle of fresh and delicate appointments.


Here’s to Monday!

…if strawberries are served the hulls should be left on and the berries carefully selected for size and color. White grapes, peeled and chilled, may be substituted, or iced orange juice with fresh mint. Dry toast with unsalted butter, strained hone and fragrant Yuban – these complete the tray, though the modern appetite sometimes demands a three-minute egg or a slice of broiled bacon.

Alas, I would be thrilled if someone brought just the coffee to me… everything else is icing!
