salad, of course! here you see bulk orzo, imported pecorino romano, local basil, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and peas, and stupidly un-local carrots. oh, well. still, it should be pretty tasty!
just a tip to you practicing omnivores out there: when we say don't go to any trouble for us, we mean it! all we really need to know before coming over for a meal at your house is if we should bring anything. really. it's fine. and tell us if there's bacon in the baked beans.
at the market this morning, i got a chinese cabbage that's a lot like bok choi, but i can't for the life of me remember the name. it was similar. tok choi? there are about 2 references to tok choi when googled. anyways, it's spread wide, with smaller leaves in the center. the seller told me it has more nutrients. well, all right! looks like bugs got to it before i did, but that's never really deterred me before.
a couple quotes for you from animal, vegetable, miracle:
In a country where 5 percent of the world's population glugs down a quarter of all the fuel, also belching out much of the world's waste and pollution, we've apparently made big choices about consumption. They could be up for review.
But sticking it to the Man (whoever he is) may not be the most inspired principle around which to organize one's life....Food is the rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure. Why resist that?
in other words (by kelley): wait! the tomatoes will come!
