Why can’t I Remember This?

Perhaps it is Senior Syndrome catching up with me, but I can’t figure out why I can’t remember to try this:

Tapenade (French pronunciation: [tapənad]Occitantapenada [tapeˈnadɔ]) is a Provençal[1] dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olivescapersanchovies and olive oil[2]. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas (pronounced [taˈpenɔs]). It is a popular food in the south of France, where it is generally eaten as an hors d’œuvre, spread on bread. Sometimes it is also used to stuff fillets for a main course.

I will try to remember to try it tomorrow.  It would be a nice lunch/snack.  I even cleaned my mortar and pestle earlier today in anticipation.

I’m getting old.
