For lunch I'm having leftovers from yesterday's dinner.
I'm having my asparagus tart, the one that's really Martha's Stewart's Asparagus-Gruyere Tart but I like to claim as my own. It's a special tart I make for friends (I'll tell you more about that in a minute) and since yesterday I was going to have dinner with 12 new friends I figured I would make my special tart.
Every month Foodbuzz hosts an online event called 24x24 which showcases 24 meals in 24 hours. This month I was one of the featured publishers chosen to document a special meal, and yesterday's dinner sure was special.
Last night my tummy and my soul were fed. As I stood around the table with 12 other women, in a house I had never been before, some shared stories about growing up in the 60s to women who are just now growing up, I felt right at home. Sharing food and sharing stories about food, true life stories, is the definition of nourishment in my world.
Yesterday I was nourished by the hands and hearts of 12 strangers and it was delicious.
