it took so long since my last post… i was sick for over a week. really sick, like i haven’t been in years. but it was bearable, since i was so well cared for… my parents visited every few hours during the day, to make sure i had everything i needed (from home-made chicken stock to coke) and my boyfriend came on most evenings to pay me company. despite the fact that i was probably highly contagious! it gave me a very warm, cherished feeling. i felt loved. that probably helped me to get better sooner.
i can now eat most things again – and i’m sure you can imagine my happiness. today, i had to go home in my lunch break to pick up a few things. normally, i never do that. it just consumes so much time. but there, at home, in the bright sunshine, i celebrated my regained health and joie de vivre with a simple avocado sandwich that i ate on the balcony. those were a few blissful minutes of solitude and joy.
1 avocado, halved, pitted and cut into thin slices
1 cuore di bue tomato, cut into slices
1 piece of bread
goat’s cream cheese
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
generous pinch of herbed salt
half the bread loaf, spread some goat’s cream cheese on it and place the tomato and avocado slices on top. sprinkle with lemon juice and salt.
