I was uninspired for dinner. So I fell back on pasta figuring I could add in Calvo Nero, onion, garlic, chick peas and a slug of the lemon olive oil that we (the royal we) bought back from Canada. It tasted a bit on the sweet side. I scrabbled for other ingredients to balance out the puzzling sweetness.
Then I glanced at the label. It wasn’t oil. It was lemon balsamic vinegar.
So the lessons are always read the label even if you think you know and there is probably something that can be done to make most situations more palatable (in my privileged first world existence).
