Eat 'em & Smile, Read 'em and Weep: Memorial Day Picnic In My Kitchen

Very few things leave me at a loss for words. Here's one that did--my lunch today:

Egg sandwich:
2 slices La Brea Bakery rosemary-olive oil bread
2 medium-cooked (6 min.) eggs, sliced width-wise
about a dozen small capers
drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
drizzle of blood-orange balsamic vinegar
jam all ingredients together and Bob's your uncle

Roasted Marrow Bones:
3 pounds marrow bones from Whole Paycheck Market
a little baggie of coarse sea salt
roast bones in oven-proof frying pan at 450 for 20 minutes
cut a few small lengths of bread
scoop out thumb-sized hunks of marrow and slop onto bread
sprinkle salt on top and try not to eat all 3 pounds worth

Beer:
1 Asahi Super-Dry tallboy (otokonoko takai?)
one church-key
open bottle and pour down throat
hope that beer does something that makes you less likely to die from eating too much bone marrow

That's it. I have nothing smart to say about it. Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
