Beet Chips

http://grantfarms.com/index.cfm/category/476/beet-chips.cfm

These turned out fairly well.  Except the slices were not very consistent.  It takes a lot of downward pressure with a mandolin I guess.  Either that or my speed contest wasn't the greatest.  They took way less time to bake than they said.

Pesto Pasta

Basil pasto from Andrea:

http://cooking-books.blogspot.com/2009/08/fresh-basil-pesto.html

Fusili plus a lot of random veggies.  Carmelized onions again.  Broccoli, peppers.  Zucchini.  Okra.

Yum.

Tacos of greens and tomatillo sauce

The friday taco extravaganza.  We winged (wong?) this one.  Tomatillo sauce, beans greens, tater, carmelized onions.  Pretty tasty.  Made a whole lot.

Curried Spelt (Farro) Salad

Bon Appetit, June 2012, pg 105.  We used farro instead of spelt, and got a rotisserie chicken.  And used spinach instead of arugula.  Went a little heavier on the spices too.

Tuscan Kale Caesar Salad

Bon Appetit July 2011.  Also Epicurious.  Soooo tasty.  We fordid the fancy pants egg thing and just served it with hard-boiled eggs.  We also used way less oil in the dressing.  And a bit easier on the anchovies.  And we made it with regular Kale instead of Tuscan.  Still delicious.

Make sure you cut the kale thinly (1/4") crosswise.
