Zaya, wine tasting and tomato kind of day

- Loving my lunch at lovely Zaya in Inman Park. Chicken Shawarma, boneless chicken marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and aromatic Lebanese spices, went well with yogurt salad, tabbouleh, pita bread and hummus. I have a weakness for Mediterranean food and could eat it every day.

- Observing two of the restaurant staff tasting wine from a visiting merchant, taking a sip and then spitting it into a bucket. And thinking alternately how much fun that would be to choose wine for a restaurant and what a "waste" of good wine.

- Later after church dinner, I thank the cook and get a hug in return. She sends me off with one of those cellophane wrapped cucumbers leftover from the salad making. Bill thinks it is a zucchini and announces that Anne has a good recipe for zucchini and tomato casserole. Anne: Bill that is a cucumber! Bill: (crestfallen) Oh. Me: Give it to me anyway. It's been a tomato kind of day.
