Leafy Greens Update

The hashed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Zest recipe from this Bitten post is amazing.  After you’ve done it once it’s definitely easy enough to do quickly on a week night.  The vermouth and restrained use of butter and olive oil enliven the roughage, while the mustard seeds (my preference over poppy seeds) give them a little extra edge.  

I just love this recipe because it’s haute enough to serve on the weekends as a side dish and fun enough that you want to eat it during the week while being “healthy.”  I bet it does well in the refrigerator overnight for lunch too, though both times I’ve made it there hasn’t been any left over (a good sign no?).  

Other notes: I highly recommend that you use Meyer lemons if they are available.  Meyer lemons soothe SO hard.  File under constant obsession. 

I can’t wait to delve into THIS.

On a search for beautiful images of Meyer Lemons I discovered Robert Stark III, a realist painter who appears from his subjects to live somewhat of a idyllic existence on the eastern seaboard.  I quite enjoy the surrealist edge he brings to his paintings because of, or in spite of, his masterfully realist technique.

What I’ve been reading at nytimes.com this week

I can’t wait to read the Vena Cava blog.

I love Brussels sprouts.

The more I think about it, the more upset I am about this.

I’m so glad this is not my life.

The achievement gap is even wider between high-income high-achieving whites and high-income high-achieving blacks.

Let’s get more in-depth about how the stimulus will help schools that serve low-income students.  This is a start.

The sketchy 7-5 keeping another innocent man behind bars.  Justice is a joke.
