But this evening, this evening at dinner, it was my mother’s old, cracked salad bowl that sat on the dining room table at dinner time, its sprung wood piece now so severely hanging off the edge that filling the bowl to the top is no longer a wise choice for fear of losing half one’s salad!
A flavoursome, fresh green salad stood at attention inside the bowl, waiting to be gobbled down alongside a delicious coconut curry. Amidst the lettuce were hidden succulent chunks of grapefruit and litchi. Sprinkled on top of this tasty concoction was a mix of toasted sesame seeds and sliced almonds.
I smiled to myself after I sat down to dinner… my mother, an avid fan of fresh and interesting dishes, would definitely have approved of the contents of her battered old Goodwill treasure!
