Ladies of leisure assemble ostensibly for cards or tiles, but in fact for drinks, talking about who isn’t there and one who is.
Even the food is fussy: lavishly garnished congealed salad, trimmed sandwiches, and the obligatory stuffed tomato salad.
Slice the top quarter off a tomato, score the flesh and scoop it out; save for salsa. Drain rind and dust with salt and pepper. Stuff with chicken, shrimp, or tuna salad.
Cheese will run.
