    That food all looks amazing. Think I will have to try an eggplant dish. Yum. This afternoon
    I enjoyed cake and wine with a friend. Can't remember the last time I had cake. Stan threatened to say "cake or die" ( from Monty Python) to the cake sales lady but I managed to dissuade him.

    Carolyn, eggplant is one of my favourite foods, and this was caramelized … wonderfully good. We had some memorable meals and none expensive. I'm glad you're eating cake. Marie Antoinette would approve.
