Baby turnips, sauvigon blanc, voting

Baby turnips cooked slowly in just a little olive oil on a slow heat in a pan with the lid on, and served with finely chopped parsley.

Sauvignon blanc can be overwhelming sometimes, too scented and herbal, but when these characteristics are restrained as in the wines of the upper Loire, it is good for a summer, mid-day drinking. You look for and find a steeliness in the taste.

Voting in a church hall, empty except for the supervisors who are half asleep, is a surreal, dream-like experience.
