Burrata

He tapped me on the shoulder Sunday afternoon and inquired, “would you like a ball of burrata?”

“Of course!” was and always will be my answer.
He disappeared out the door and returned minutes later. His right hand held a bag from Murray’s Cheese. We slid the burrata into a bowl and downed it all. Two spoons. Simple, fresh, and utterly luxurious.

“How many calories do you think that was?”
“Don’t ask.”
We settled in for a late afternoon nap.

    Hi! Long time reader, rare commenter ;). I remember reading this post and obsessing over burrata. I didn't think it would be found in Honolulu, but I found it last night at Whole Foods! It's probably not as fresh as you can get it. It's sitting in the fridge, waiting to be devoured.
