Figs & waking

…gastronomical perfection can be reached in these combinations: one person dining alone, usually upon a couch or a hill side; two people, of no matter what sex or age, dining in a good restaurant; six people… dining in a good home.
~ M. F. K. Fisher

Is it ridiculous to admit that the only thing that got me out of bed this morning was the thought of the fresh figs in my kitchen?

Breakfast today was an impromptu plate composed of the following:

    sweet ripe figs
    careless cubes of buffalo mozzarella
    fragments of fresh basil
    salty shreds of prosciutto
    balsamic vinegar – a splash, and
    black pepper.

Recommended for days you need swift assistance with getting out of bed.
