From a while back…Facebook reminded me today about this event.
I was home alone, a rarity at the time, and made myself a date with Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. I have the Masterpiece Mystery DVDs (thank you, Grill-Meister!), and I know how to stretch out the pleasure of watching them.
It doesn’t make any sense at all that I’d pair a spicy southwestern dish like nachos with the natty, stuffy, short, smart (fictional) Belgian detective from the 1930s, but it worked! Great story, great food. Great (alone) time.
Something I’ve learned is that the better I treat myself when it’s only me, the happier I am with my alone time. Thus the sides and the garnishes and the special plating. Go, Sriracha!
Just looking at this picture again makes me hungry for nachos paired with a Poirot DVD or two.
