6 X 8"
oil on canvas
Apparently I'm nursing a growing penchant for empty, high-end condiment bottles. This little gem was once the home of some very expensive and incredibly tasty balsamic vinegar. I was making tea this morning when I spied it nestled in between the peppercorns and the Spanish Paprika. I almost washed it off, but all the stains made it more interesting, so I left it as it was. I'm glad. It has more character.
A word about the meal himself prepared last night is appropriate here, keeping with the flavor of today's daily. Rib eye steaks with onions sauteed in butter, bourbon and brown sugar, twice baked herbed potatoes whipped with garden vegetable cream cheese and asparagus wrapped in bacon with a sprig of rosemary. Oh my, it was one of his top-ten best ever. I am very fortunate woman.
