Told the leonine exiled contessa,
"If you promise to love me, I will marry above me,
And the greater will cleave to the lesser"

A head's up on this week's menu -
Tuesday's Barley Salad is a mystery to me.
Wednesday's Avocado Heroes are dependent on the avocados being ripe by then. I'm hopeful.
It appears that we've been making too many chocolate desserts here lately. Surprised me, too. How about pie then?

Last week I gave credit where credit was due, to RJ. If you don't get it, then you should have read the sidebars. 


  1. Hello!

    I was thrilled to find this blog, as an alumnus who desperately misses Opus.

    I was saddened to see that I missed the overview of the vegetarian chili, hummus wraps, and hummus(My lunch almost every day for 4 years). Would it be possible to revisit those?

    1. The profiles of the hummus, hummus wraps and chili were just ingredient lists and nutritional info. I'd be happy to re-post that.

  2. That would be awesome! Thank you!



The work-a-day world takes its toll,
You may gasp for a grasp of the Whole,
To trade virulent clatters, for something that matters,
Put your hands on the shape of a bowl.
