Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
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.
