What’s for Dinner?
When the first layer of my CSA box reveals itself as a collage of cilantro, green onions, chives, and radishes, of course I know I’m in business for Cinco de Mayo. It became clearer as I really unearthed their vast volume, not to mention some mighty tasty other gems, that we would also be celebrating Seis de Mayo, Siete de Mayo, and Ocho de Mayo. Mexican heaven! This along spring’s first asparagus delivery, some truly tasty experimentation as to whether rhubarb is a fruit or a veggie (both – botanically a vegetable, but generally eaten as a fruit so classified as such,) and my first ever Derby Day celebration. Fresh mint julep anyone?
