You know you are a die hard food lover when your six year old son runs up the stairs excitedly to say, "Mom! I made a lego meat tenderizer." Sure enough he had made one, (plastic) blades and all, just like our Jaccard... He has now made plans for an entire kitchen set, including a Lego Vitamix, Lego dumpling press, and Lego . I couldn't be prouder!
But tonight no Lego's were harmed to bring to you Sunday dinner. This dinner is true iron chef style, made with what we had in our CSA box and I especially loved the bean dish. The smoked chicken broth married perfectly with the creamy Rancho Gordo beans and parsley root. If you haven't tried parsley root, you should. It is a wonderful, slightly sweet, fresh flavor.
