"A Perfectly Gawgous Vegetable Dinner"

Dinner, the Revised Standard Version: no favas, new red potatoes, hericots verts, and shallots on the greens, w/ Vinaigrette, S &P, and Raspberries win over Strawberries.
Dinner as originally planned: Bing Cherries, Fava Beans, baby greens, A tomato and Artichoke Foccaccia from Kathy the Baker, red berries, and an Unoaked CA Chard. The fresh local Chevre is missing.

The cherries are not part of dinner, but are out as a snack until they're gone (Probably Sunday).

JohnieB -- just wandered over from Mimi's -- your dinner looks wonderful -- I can't wait until our farmers' market opens here. (you didn't live in NJ as a quite young person, did you? I knew a JohnieB whose father was a chemist)

No, I grew up in South Arkansas; my dad was an Electrician and a Machinist.

I have to confess this is not as "local and seasonal" as I would like, but it shore is fittin'!

As soon as I find a place fit for company, I'll start letting y'all know: seriously.

I'd allow about two hours, CR.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Johnieb, it is a gawgeous dinner, and I know that it was as good as it was beautiful. Did you drink the whole bottle by yourself?

johnieb said...

No, Mimi; I have one of those pump-out-the -air stoppers, which helps considerably in preservation.

The bread and the cherries alone, would sustain me.
