When questioned, “How are you?” people often respond “busy.” When asked, “How a poem is?” do you think the response is “busy?”
When you ask a cook the same question (How are you?) most likely you’ll be handed a bowl of marinated olives to put on the table. She will be smiling.
To olives, lemon peel, dried lemon thyme, garlic, bay leaf, olive oil, add almonds and/or chopped tomatoes. Yes, tomatoes.
