What’s for Dinner?

I’m kicking off the week with the crazies. The food crazies, that is. A couple foodie friends who, along with myself, go downright embarrassingly overboard in preparing themed dinners. This time around, it’s to Spain we go… a veritable feast of traditional tapas, a Valencian spring paella, and of course the requisite flan. And we certainly won’t forget the sangria, cava, txakoli, and rioja! I’ve also got a Memorial Day BBQ full of delicious traditional grill items, plus some non-traditional (think collard greens, in the raw). Adding some laughs to the veggie week, I’ll do my darndest to figure out how to use the TEN bunches of farm fresh scallions that were in my box this week!
