The first day of Spring means it's asparagus time!
Berkeley Bowl (that place is easier to deal with on a weeknight) had tips for $1.29/lb, so I got two big bunches. One is going to become asparagus enchiladas, and the other will become asparagus-pancetta soup that the amazingly energetic Deb made the other day. Sounds like as good a reason as any to use up the chicken backs in the freezer for stock.
I have also been on a roll-up sandwich kick since I got some lavash from Trader Joe's. I got sliced turkey breast at the B-Bowl deli last night and will be doing a "California Club" (turkey, guacamole, bacon, tomatoes). The roast beef with horseradish cream cheese and pickles was pretty good. I might make some hummus to go with the Middle Eastern chopped salad (today for sure, Rocky) and that might get in a roll too, especially since pre-roasted red bells called out my name at the olive bar.
The weather still continues warm so room temp food is fine by me.
