As the psalmist said “wine to make them glad, olive oil to soothe their skin, and bread to give them strength”: Take a good ciabatta for dunking into the oil left in the pan.  Roasted asparagus makes a most excellent evening meal. Roasted garlic is not to be left out.  Add freshly squeezed lemon juice at serving.
