There's a company called FreshDirect (with or without a space, I suspect without), which is offering $50 worth of free perishables delivered to people who live in my building. I loaded up on fruit and vegetables, and have been frantically cooking to use them up before they go bad.

The really successful thing a couple of days ago, though, was something Lisa asked me to cook (when I asked her to pick things for me to cook): mango curry, which we agreed was a near-perfect blend of sweet/savory and tender/crisp.

Finished the Ornetteathon, which was great but exhausting;
