Salads

We inventoried the refrigerator tonight to see how well we’re keeping up with our CSA and Farmer’s Market produce. We’re making progress, but there’s stil a lot left! Next week, I’ll try to remember to take a picture of the fridge once it’s been filled.

We had broccoli parmesan fritters from Smitten Kitchen for dinner. I forgot to get a picture of them, but I assure you they’re delicious. We usually eat ours with parmesan garlic sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings, which  you can buy in bottles. It’s a bit of an odd combination, but the sauce adds a fun spice to the fritters.

We’re having the Roasted Fennel and Hazelnut Salad with Shallot Dressing from Veganomicon on Thursday, so we roasted a bulb of fennel this evening. It’s also a pleasant surprise (for me, at least) to cut into fennel and smell licorice. (Full disclosure: I have no idea how to cut fennel. Aaron did that–I just enjoyed the smell.)

Roasted Fennel Although we’ve had several salads, we still have mixed greens left; we tried to finish up the bag by making salads for lunch tomorrow. There’s probably one salad’s worth left. Oops. I’ve been enjoying the various fruits and vegetables we have available for dressing up a salad; tomorrow’s lunch has beets and strawberries, along with feta and goat cheese. This picture is a little bright with the flash, but it’s a prettier picture than the non-flash version, so we’re going to go with it.
