Soul Food

What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul? (Author: Elise Marie Collins)

In the middle of a hot, hot day in Paris, we stopped and sat at an outdoor cafe. I was jet-lagged, tired, and I was getting a blister from all the walking. And since my French is, well, non-existent, my lunch totally surprised me. (“Legume” may come from the French, but in France it means “vegetable” not lentils and the like.) So my legume salad consisted of freshly grilled vegetables – eggplant, zucchini, and red pepper. Some slices of mozzarella. Pesto drizzled around the plate and, I think, a little balsamic vinegar.

It was heavenly. Just what I wanted as it turned out. And completely not what I expected.
