Pain Bagnat

This is a great dinner in the summer when you want to avoid heating up the entire house.

Serves 3.

First, make the vinaigrette.

You will need:

1 lemon, juiced
a splash of red wine vinegar
1 red “boiling” onion, minced
several tablespoons of olive oil
a pinch each of garlic powder, herbes de Provence, salt & pepper
a tablespoon of feta cheese

Then, in a salad bowl, layer:

lettuce leaves
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, sliced
1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced thin (you may need only half)
lettuce leaves

In separate bowls, serve:

1 can tuna with olive oil (drained)
3 hardboiled eggs, chopped
additional feta

Serve with rolls.

Terimuso means friend in the lingua franca of Mali, West Africa. My poems reflect the many homelands of my childhood. My dad snapped the header photo to this blog in Casablanca, Morocco, as we were en route to Montpellier, France. This photo—with me in a red dress, holding my mom's hand—foreshadows the themes I explore in poetry: light and dark, East and West, mother and child. In this blog I juxtapose early and recent poems, stringing them together as they come to mind or as one theme suggests another. I invite you to accompany me on the journey.
