Our Lady of the Holy Avocado

At the corner of Hungry and Holy

If you read my post on how a small, quiet restaurant can be as quiet and holy a place for me as a sanctuary, you won’t be surprised that a fruit and sundries vendor at the corner of Harvard St. and James Wood (the developer, not the actor) took the idea a step farther, making his catering coach into a traveling church, collapsing the distance between the holy and the hungry to one truck panel.

Inside the truck were the best and cheapest avocados I’ve had in a while, perfectly ripe Haas for 50 cents each.  I bought one, a bollilo and a Coke, and that was my $2.45 lunch.

Have a great Shabbat…..
