We're back!

You may have noticed we didn't post much over the weekend. It was a busy one for us here in Atlanta. Friday night we saw a great show at the Center for Pupptery Arts and then rushed over to Antico for pizza. Saturday we biked to Candler Park for the Sweetwater 420 Fest and then had dinner at the home of our friends Laura and AJ (of the LB Collective) before biking home again in the rain. And Sunday was the Piedmont Park Dogwood Festival! Lots of time outdoors and on bikes - not a lot of time in the kitchen. 

But now, a new camera plus a week's worth of YDFM groceries later and we're back in business! We've started this week off right too. Breakfast: steel cut oatmeal with golden raisins and coconut. Lunch: turkey sandwiches (YDFM's own smoked turkey with pepper) on fresh whole wheat bread with homegrown arugula, a drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and shavings of Parmesan. Dinner: London Broil* with a side salad of homegrown arugula and baked potato with Greek yogurt and chives (and two glasses of pinot noir). 

We've also happily given away many of our lettuces! (We even convinced the mailman to take two.) They're looking good but they're starting to fade. I don't mind because that means we're finally sneaking up on my favorite garden time of the year - TOMATO TIME! Of the three tomato plants currently in our garden the heirloom just won the award for "first fruit" of the season. Tomato season has begun! 
*Not a true London Broil because it was dry rubbed rather than marinated. Long acidic marinades make the surface mealy and don't penetrate a dense cut enough to really tenderize.
