Thursday Portrait.....





For years I didn't have a paved drive-way.
I had about 75 feet of crushed limestone between my cement approach from the road, and the cement slab in front of my garage. About 10 years ago I got the unpaved part black-topped, and every year I either seal it myself, or have it done.
Yesterday I gave specific instructions NOT to drive on it for 24 hours.
Do you see a faint outline of some tire tracks?
Some people never listen....
On my way home tonight, I stopped at a little Mid-Eastern Mkt. called Kamils. He makes the best Baba Ganush and Hommus for about 3.50 a serving.
He also has several varieties of olives available, and I got some deliciously spiced green ones. The Pita bread has this mixture of olive oil, crushed sesame and savory herbs, and garlic on top. Man is that good! Along with some packs of Sesame Snaps, the total bill came to $15.55.
$15.55??
That reminds me something, I just can't remember what.......

Peace...!!!

I like the way "baba ganush" sounds.

I hope I can up with a 55, 'cuz I knows how to linky now.

Thom said...

Who would do such a thing as make stripes? At least zig zag to give se pizzaz!' thinking thinking. Hmmm

Serena said...

So, are the tire marks there to stay 'til the next sealing? Yikes. I don't like hummus, olives, or garlic, but I hope YOU enjoyed it. I'm not sure what Baba Ganush is, but I might eat it just because it has a cool name.:)

As I sit here, eating OLIVES, I can't help but wonder if Michigan is too darned far away some days, G-Man.

Thanks for a fabulous reminder that small things can be important!

Dude blow up and frame the top picture and give it to the miscreant.

$15.55 is that somehow significant?

I never liked olives until about 6 years ago... Now I love them- black or green! Olive oils are my go to oil for cooking...

Lynn said...

That is my absolute favorite food - middle eastern / Mediterranean food. I've learned to make hummus, but it always tastes better coming from those markets. The olives look so good!
