Taxing Lunch

We put aside an entire Saturday for this chore. As I write, we are assembling the annual information for our accountant to do our taxes. Ugh. For all-out boredom punctuated by chills of fear, I can't think of a rival for filling out tax forms. Neither My Beloved nor I are any good at math, or keeping records, or anything requiring diligence, so this yearly event is our nadir.

When one is struggling and swearing one's way through the tax form nightmare, spectacularly tasty lunches are in order to keep spirits and energy high. Luckily, ingredients for just such a lunch were in the house.

A Della Fattoria campagne loaf, Bellwether Farms farmer's cheese and Jeanne's Mom's unbelievably good avocado. Toast the bread, spread the cheese, slice the avo, drizzle a little EVOO, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and a tiny spritz of Hawaiian red salt and you've got lunch that will sustain calculations throughout a long, taxing afternoon.

Oh yeah, that stuff. That's why I have an accountant. I just bring in whatever I have and she does it for me. No stress, no thought, no problem. Plus she's a hot blonde, makes it nicer.

Yummy, thought, before I read the post and just saw the picture I thought that was avo on smoked trout pate. I think I'd like a slice of both, right about now.

Greg, I'm finding that really good ingredients allow for simplicity.

Rev. Biggles, this was just to prepare to send that stuff off to the accountant!

Cookiecrumb, are you sure Cranky is doing a good job? Seems weird that he can do it so fast.

Morgan, you elicited a memory for me of smoked whitefish paté that we had in Michigan. Now I want some and it's 1,000 miles away. Wonder if I can find some on the web...

Biggles, good reminder. I have a fresh bag of real charcoal, too. Need to thaw a steak or something!
