I'm sitting cross-legged on my therapist's couch 4 months after my husband's announcement that he wants a divorce when my therapist informs me that he thinks I should start dating again.
I had told myself and others that I was going to take time off to concentrate on myself for once. Between a husband and three boys, I didn't know who I was anymore. I just wanted to hang out with my girlfriends, drink martinis like a fish, and let the hair grow long on my legs if I wanted. I had even gone so far as to announce to my friends that I was going to take a full year off from any kind of relationship.

A bunch of fresh sage, cut from the garden, washed, and dried (Salvia officinalis ’Berggarten’ is the best.)
2 parts flour, 1 part water, 1 part white wine (Make it something light like a Pinot Grigio. If you don’t have wine, you can use 2 parts water but it’s not quite the same.)
Whip the ingredients above into a batter.
Heat a liberal amount of oil in a skillet. Dip individual sage leaves, one by one, into the batter. As you bring the leaf out of the batter bowl, drag both sides across the rim of the bowl so the batter on the leaf isn’t too thick. Make sure your oil is hot. I usually just test this by putting the first sage leaf in and waiting until it starts to fry nicely. Fry several leaves at a time, turning when they are golden brown on one side. Remove when both sides are golden and place them on paper towels on a rack. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Enjoy!
Finish off that Pinot Grigio while you’re at it.
