No, not Rushdie. But Jeff gave me the idea of using the dill for some sort of salmon appetizer this coming Saturday, when Brigitte is having her apartment sale.
Here's what I'm thinking: maybe some herb-Boursin with multiple-added ingredients (such as are abundant in the herb boxes -- tons of dill, chives, parsley, thyme) spread on rye bread squares (or rounds -- gotta get a little metal round-cutter) topped with a succulent slice of smoked salmon. I'm too lazy to make gravlax, but idea #2 might work. That with filet mignons with shiitake mushroom sauce and summer corn on the cob, all washed down with perhaps some champagne or vin mousseux -- plus some guitar playing and music talk -- well, I think that's a downright good idea.
