Using What Is At Hand

May 9, 2013

If you read Monday’s post, you saw Sarah, my son’s girlfriend with bags of booty from my garden.

Here’s her culinary transformation of kale, roasted beets and carrots, calendula petals, violas with farro and almonds. Balsamic vinegarette dresses this sumptuous salad.

Sarah’s salad reminds me of how my Grandmother Bell cooked. She made wonderful meals from what was at hand. During the Depression that wasn’t much at times; but she seasoned it well and made it beautiful for her family.

We can all do that.
