The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

My Lunch

Today I had . . .


  • One Pita
  • Half an Avocado
  • Diced Tomato
  • Diced Onion
  • Feta Cheese
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • A small amount of Olive Oil

  • Ready Pac Salad Lettuce
  • Half an Avocado
  • Tomato
  • Diced Israeli brine pickles
  • Onion
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Olive Oil
  • Vinegar

I prefer fresh basil and cracked pepper as spices.

Of note Wikipedia says:

  • Cucumbers were probably first pickled 4400 years ago in Mesopotamia, where it spread around the world across trade routes, reaching China as early as the second century BC. Cucumber-pickling might have spread through the Jewish diaspora [citation needed].
  • Oregano is an important culinary herb. It is particularly widely used in Greek and Italian Cuisines. It is the leaves that are used in cooking, and the dried herb is often more flavourful than the fresh. It is a conditio sine qua non in Italian cuisine. It is used in tomato sauces, fried vegetables and grilled meat. Together with basil, it makes up for the character of Italian dishes . . .

  • After a long legal battle with Denmark, which produced a similar cheese under the same name, the term "feta" is now a protected designation of origin (PDO), which limits the term "feta" within the European Union to Greek feta.[2]
  • The characteristic odor of onions can be removed with lemon.

I'm glad you found it interesting -I'm sure the pizza was better . . . Pizza is one thing that no matter how bad it is, it's still pretty good.
