Garden bounty

My parents came to visit this past weekend, and it was a lot of fun. My mom brought me a tote bag full of goodies from her garden: several bags of young lettuce and spinach, a bag of mixed heartier greens (mustard, kale, chard), a bag of beautiful gold and white baby beets (none bigger than a golf ball), a few stalks of asparagus, a bag of cilantro, and a few baggies of dried herbs.

I spent yesterday turning all that into stuff. The spinach and lettuce became salads. I roasted all the beets, put some in the salads, and turned the rest into tomorrow's post. I'm working most of this week, so all those pre-made salads will really come in handy.
