today's forage

At eleven o’clock I decide to walk to the grocery store and buy sardines. Because I can and because I’m suddenly overcome with a yen for a sardine salad and we’ve been out of sardines for at least a week and no home should be without them.

Ever.

Or lemons for that matter, but this isn’t about lemons.

I’m back in time to cut some greens from the garden, collect a few dandelion flowers and some buds too (every part of a dandelion is edible, even the milky stalks, which is handy to know should you ever find yourself feeling peckish in the middle of a field).

I chop a shallot, toast a slice of Eziekiel bread for croutons then toss the lot with olive oil, sprinkle with kelp and cayenne… and settle down to The Big Bang Theory at noon—my latest lunch-with-TV obsession.
