Yesterday I wrote about things I wanted to cook. Today I did cook, along with Carol and Len. We made things in the spirit of our recent dining adventures in Israel. In the photo collage above, you can see bread, hummus, roasted eggplant with tomatoes, vegetable skewers on the grill, Carol's grape leaf pie (lower left), grilled chicken, lamb meatballs, and our strictly American dessert: rhubarb sauce served over ice cream. Carol's pie used grape leaves from her garden in her interpretation of an Ottolenghi contribution to the Splendid Table.

now I've made it.
