Lettuce Week: Monday

Get excited: it’s motherf’ing lettuce week.  Our garden has exploded within the last two weeks: the photo on the left was taken on May 13th, the one on the right on May 27th.

Garden May 13 vs May 27

Now it’s time to start eating the bounty.  The lettuce/kale/spinach in particular needs to be consumed before it goes to seed.  So, I have meals planned for each weeknight this week using produce from our backyard and will post links to the recipes I used.

Produce: Kale

Kale

Recipe: Kale, Apple and Pancetta Salad from Once Upon a Chef

No photograph of mine would be as nice as the one from Once Upon a Chef.  This salad is delicious.  I’ve made it before for people who don’t usually like raw kale (Hi, Kateri) or lettuce in general (Hi, Rodger) and everyone devoured it.
