A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, and a word that shall echo for evermore!
For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, through all our history, to the last,
In the hour of darkness and peril and need, the people will waken and listen to hear
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Composed a faux-Mediterranean thing with roasted lamb chops, rice, onions, a little tomato (not sure whether I want to keep it), lots of chopped parsley, a few whole olives, cooked in olive oil (I put too much ), added a little lemon juice, ginger, and rosemary. Overall, I like it, I'm going to keep this recipe after a little refining. Served with pistachios and dried apricots to go with the theme.
