Sunday 12 July
We are trying to make a little space in the freezer, so we pried out a big sirloin steak and threw it on the grill.
On the side, we rasped out a batch of celeriac and cooked it Elizabeth David-style, using garden tarragon and white wine vinegar.
And for dessert, Holt made yet another birthday cake for Barbara, using all her favorite flavors: he baked Alton Brown's recipe for shortcakes, using all butter, and cutting them into hearts. Then he halved and filled them with his own lemon curd, and topped them with fresh blueberries.
We love these three-day birthday weekends.
