It was a simple mix of baby greens (one bag for $1 at the farmers market today — just enough for one dinner) and a homemade basil vinaigrette.

It’s funny. It seems like with beets, people either love them or hate them. And of the people that hate them, I find that most haven’t ever actually had fresh beets.

This evening, I was tucking Will into bed when I asked him if he knew what day tomorrow is. He didn’t, but he declared it to be the day we play the square game (Candy Land, in lay terms). The boy never forgets anything — this afternoon on the way home from school, I mentioned […]
