We just couldn't wait.

I'm pretty sure this occasion deserves a blog post:

We ate our first garden veggies tonight for dinner.

I had three leaves of store-bought romaine lettuce in the fridge. I supplemented them with these:

Baby spinach, mesclun, and mixed greens planted in February.

Tossed in some diced up chicken and shredded carrots, cashews, sesame seeds and an oriental dressing*, and we had Chinese chicken salad for dinner. Yum.

It's not much, that first little harvest, but Two Little Girls cleaned their bowls and asked for seconds because it's just that exciting to eat from the garden. :o)


*Oriental Dressing
(Measurements are approximate. I eyeball it.)

1/2 c. olive oil
2-3 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tbsp. honey
2 tsp soy sauce
several splashes of sesame oil

Mix well to incorporate all ingredients. Use immediately, or it will separate. If it does, just mix it up again. This stuff is good.
