Mari took me to a very early-morning appointment with the retinal specialist. Having your eyes opened wide on the inside so people can shine in bright lights is nothing to undertake before lunch, but there I was.
By the time we were home from all that -- on a sunny day & me with no blindfold -- it was time for lunch. I cooked a pot of de Puy lentils in water with a couple of bay leaves + four cloves of peeled garlic.
I told the children when I called them down, "Lunch isn't fancy, but it is delicious, and it's hot."
