My friend, Erik, and I try to get together every few weeks for an evening of good food paired with great conversation. This ritual typically involves one of our usual go-to meals of either sushi or Thai. This time we decided to switch things up a bit. I made the main course (Panang curry consisting of assorted mushrooms, carrots, red potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and tofu, over a bed of jasmine rice), he was in charge of the wine (a bottle of red) and dessert (Belgian milk chocolate gelato and Roman raspberry sorbet).
While the tofu was pressing, I gave Erik a tour of the grounds and gardens. I was rambling on about the different varieties of kale I have planted when something caught his eye. Now, I warn you, there is a ridiculous amount of heart-squishy, squeal-inducing, cuteness ahead. Consider yourself warned.
Seriously, just look at those ears, I could barely maintain composure! Talk about teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, adorable fluffiness! I quickly grabbed Jedi, who was eyeing him up in a very predatory way, and tossed her into the house; she was less than pleased. It took everything I had to refrain from scooping the bunny up and cuddling the daylight right out of it! Hopefully, Mr. bunny will remember me saving him from Jedi’s jaws and will think twice about nibbling on my tender salad greens and baby kale! But probably, most likely, not.
