The Luxury of Time

This is my last weekday of freedom before returning back to the the cave. One of the greatest aspects of the luxury of time is to be able to make and eat lunch at home. I love to step into the kitchen to eat when my body wants to eat not at 12:00 PM or as is most typical when I can step away for 5 minutes to pop something from the lean cuisine line of tastes almost like food products into the microwave and then scurry with it in hand back to my hallway excuse for an office. At home, I use fresh ingredients and eat what sounds good to me on a particular day not what I happen to have left in the office fridge. Yesterday I made a Greek salad and nearly cried. What happened to civilized living? This morning I woke up and felt human again and it only took two weeks to return to my species.

Kalamata Olives
Red Onion
Feta Cheese (get the real stuff)
Red Wine Vinegar
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

All ingredients chopped and seasoned to preference

Yum! Greek salad is one of my very favorite things. I accidentally discovered last summer that the addition of a little dried oregano and substituting lemon juice for vinegar makes it even better (as if that is possible).

I love how your blog posts come in big spurts.

Always a joy.

They coincide with my time away from the cave. It takes about two weeks to return to a human state. Two weeks to be able to string thoughts together and begin writing.
