He hasn’t even been gone a full week, but I already miss my partner so much! I’m pathetic. I know.
A few days before leaving for Italy, he surprised me with my favorite breakfast: two eggs fried in duck fat, sliced bell peppers and red onion, stinky cheese, toasted kamut bread and butter, tissue-thin prosciutto, freshly made blood orange juice (the last of the season, sigh), and green tea. Oh, and this stunning platter of exotic dried and fresh fruits, including Izmir figs, Tajikistan apricots, Hong Kong dried papaya, San Diego sour cherries, mini guavas + Muscat grapes. The apricots blew my mind.
My eating habits have been much more… erratic since he’s left. Last week, I steadily ate from a pot of dal for four meals straight (including breakfast), until it was gone. Yesterday, I had gummi bears for lunch, and a single piece of toast for dinner. Adam, come back!
