When the Tingle Becomes a Chill

Charred Romaine Caesar Wedge with Greek Patty

In my basket: Romaine Lettuce, ground turkey, one green bell pepper.
So I charred the lettuce in the oven and covered with a warm dressing made from anchovies, garlic, mustard, Parmesan, lemon and olive oil.  I topped it also with chopped artichoke hearts and Kalamata olives.  The burger was a mix of green bell pepper, anchovies, parsley, onion, ground turkey and hummus to bind.  This one was a hit.  And I finished under the clock.
On the way to work I was reminded of my mom's lilac bushes that lined our back yard.  To my recollection they lasted all summer and spring but now I see that the flowers are a week and 1/2 to two weeks tops before they begin to brown and drop.  Isn't that interesting the way the mind works.  All those memories of rhubarb, blackberries, lilacs, lily of the valley and green apples from our first house growing up are most likely collective bunches from several years in a row, making it seem like everything was always in bloom.  Most of my good memories are in spring and summer, warm weather and playing by the creek and in the woods while it was all high and green.  Here and there I'll recall a tiny portion of fall while living in that house but the winters were more like nightmares, so I stop all my reminiscing and rush back to the present before the demons follow me.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
