James made it home today. I've been watching the garden waiting to share spring's first salad with him. I got the seeds in late this year. Today while thinning the plants I gathered a bright, peppery, slightly bitter salad of home grown arugula, pepper cress, spinach, and oak leaf lettuce. Delicious tossed in a red wine and honey vinaigrette (2 cloves minced garlic, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 2 tsp red wine vinegar, 4 TB olive oil, S&P).
Welcome home Honey. Welcome salad season.
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
