Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant

This morning I did not make it to my exercise class; however, I did manage to finish the last essay in the book Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant.  I could really relate to the "Food Nomad" essay; there are definitely *strange* foods that make me feel at home.  I have certainly had my fair share of odd looks when I come back with a bag filled with treasures.  Although, I will admit that I do also crave the "traditional, crappy, processed" junk food.  I feel fortunate that (aside from being a vegetarian) I am not a particularly picky eater. The concept of cooking and eating well as part of self-care was a theme that emerged from the essays.  I am also excited to try the recipes and cooking techniques that were described.  The way that food can draw you into a comforting place was another idea that resonated with me.

Through the Sunday Salon, you have followed along as I read this book over the course of the past four weeks.  This book was one of my selections for the What is in a Name Challenge

Would you recommend to a friend? YES!
