What’s for Dinner?
Well, a festive all-American holiday meal, to begin with. It’ll be chock full of tried-and-true Independence Day food traditions, and surely some red, white, and blue. Lots of other reasons to celebrate as well, beginning with twelve pounds of fava beans awaiting their turn at dinner. Yes, that’s right, twelve pounds. I lost my mind last week, letting half of these favas sit in my fridge, just awaiting the company of the many more pounds that arrived today. So, what else to do, but declare it fava week, a week in which they’ll grace each and every dinner table in several forms and fashions.
