CHICKPEA AND EGGPLANT SALAD WITH FRESH TOMATOES AND PEPPERS

Two eggplants

I honestly don’t feel much like blogging after yesterday’s sad news about Sher’s death. She was a great fellow food blogger, a wonderful Bread Baking Babe and a lovely human being. I think Sunday will be a sad but beautiful day in the food blog community because it will dedicated to the memory of Sher, I know that you will find many bloggers who are paying her tribute by making one of her recipes but unfortunately I cannot participate because we’re leaving for Switzerland tomorrow and unless I manage to steal some internet connection from someone living close by, I won’t have any access to the virtual world. I do hope you are either participating or just thinking about Sher on Sunday, I know I will!
Blogging is an incredible means of making friends, bonding and discover new worlds and ways of living. I know that a lot of people who don’t really know what it is about thinks that is is just a false, virtual world but we who take part of it know that this isn’t true. Maybe we dare to show ourselves even more here because we won’t be judged by how we look or behave but by who we are. Sher is a perfect example of how good blogging is to us, she touched so many lives and she will be sorely missed by us who got to know her.

I dedicate today’s recipe to Sher who knew how to appreciate food and flavours!
