Bahn Mi Wannabe

The juxtaposition of savory protein and fresh greens elevates sandwiches to other worldly status in my opinion. The decadent Bahn Mi is case in point. I translated this concept for dinner two ways:

Pulled pork topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh basil, spinach, salt and pepper

‘Tis the Seasonal Produce

  

Napa cabbage + apples + sweet potatoes = seasonal Sunday dinner. Tonight I played catch-up with some of Capay’s recent produce deliveries. The result was an improvised, colorful menu of light dishes – perfect for a lazy Sunday:

  • Salad with Napa cabbage (shredded), diced apples, sliced pecans and poppyseed dressing
  • Turkey burgers with apple slices and melted cheddar on sourdough
  • Mashed sweet potatoes with butter and honey (same method from Thanksgiving)

Cheese, Vermont-style

I’m shameless when it comes to cheese (more on that, here). I’ve been obsessed with macaroni and cheese for as long as I can remember. So I was pleasantly surprised when my coworker Martha brought me two slabs of Cabot Cheddar from Vermont. Sharp enough for snacking throughout a busy work day! And I’m sure that cheddar will turn into dinner (or at least an appetizer) for David.
