Monday lunch, yesterday's trip to Brooklyn a sweet memory lingering on my plate. Warm Za'tar bread, lemony Lebanese hummos, freshly made, long lettuce leaves, torn from a romaine heart. Organic romaine hearts form Trader Joes. Guiltily purchased rather than the more expensive but more sustainably grown local lettuce I would prefer. NPR on the radio, talk of GMO seeds, mono-culture and world hunger, a manipulated discussion that missed the real point and problem. I change the station in favor of my simple lunch and a glass of cool water, pondering what is next in my life in food.
