I would like to meet the man, and it has to have been a man, who designed the supermarket parking lots in this area.
It’s obvious that said person has never pushed a trolley full of food from the store to a car.
He probably was thinking himself quite smart when he made the parking lots slope away from the stores.
You know, keeping the rain water flowing away from the front doors and all that….
When I find this man I’m going ask him to please wheel my trolley, the one that I always get with the wonky wheel that causes it to lurch to the left, through the LeClerc parking lot for me.
Why this one?
It’s way too small, traffic goes in both directions even though there’s not enough room, it’s always jam-packed and it has a serious downhill slope.
I push the trolley, full of the week’s shopping and weighted down with 20kilos of dog food, out of the doors and across the sidewalk.
As soon as the wheels hit the tarmac it comes to life…
It takes off across the parking lot, steadily gaining speed, dragging me behind.
It continually lists to the left causing me to continually jump in front of it to prevent it from crashing into parked cars.
I finally get to my car, which, unfortunately, is on the right, not the left so preferred by my errant trolley.
I can’t stop.
All I can do is try to outrun it, spin it around and aim it at my car.
Naturally, I miss.
Then I have to bring it to a full stop and push it, uphill, to my car.
Naturally, it’s raining.
At least my car is now to the left of the trolley.
I really want to meet this guy….
I wouldn’t share my lasagna, I promise you….
This goes together quickly with no-cook lasagna noodles. The Prosciutto (or any dry-cured ham) adds a robust flavor and goes well with the goat cheese but could easily be left out for a vegetarian version. The goat cheese I used was aged, with a thin, white edible rind. The creamy kind would work here as well.
