Welcome home!

UPDATE: The salad special is a Red Leaf Lettuce Salad with Roasted Baby Carrots, radishes, red onion and Creamy Sage Goat Cheese Parmesan Dressing.

Yea, Michael's back and I'm certain he will be coming up with a garden salad special with all the veggies from One Straw Farm. This week I picked up leaf lettuce, more garlic scamps (my new favorite ingredient), precious multi-colored radishes and some red swiss chard. Doesn't Creamy Tomato Basil Soup and a Fresh Garden Salad sound nice? (Of course, our Gazpacho is really just a wet, chopped salad so you could go for a salad and salad lunch if you're feeling particularly righteous.) We also still have the Pimento Cheese Salad Sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes.

From another local organic farmer at the market, Calverts Gift Farm from Sparks, Maryland, I got fresh baby carrots and fresh garlic. I overheard the farmer talking to another customer and explaining that garlic that is currently being sold in the supermarket is as much as a year old. Individual cloves of new garlic don't even need to be peeled; the layers and layers of paperthin skin develop as the garlic ages.

So here are this weeks pics.
