An inventory of dinner:

black capsicum
small yellow tomatoes
Red curly leaf lettuce
Avocado
Olives
tiny crisp apple
red raddishs
cold pressed olive oil

red skinned potatoes
olive oil
lime juice
burnt sunflower seeds
fresh basil

carrots
zucchini

macrobiotic sea salt
black and red peppercorns
olive oil


I just learnt that lettuce contains Lactucarium (or “Lettuce Opium”) which is a mild opiate-like substance.

you're a bit behind on the times. Boil down a whole lettuce and drink the tea, a lovely airy existence!!

And "wild lettuce", smoked, same thing.

the wonderful world of lettuce.
