Three things: First salad, third-culture-kid comedy, and grandparents’ gardens

20170523_173926

Our first salad this spring! L. helped me to thin our radishes, and then I thought it would be nice to combine them with a handful of our plentiful weed, sorrel. L. took it further, adding in borage and calendula–any excuse to pick flowers, really. And voila, I think we can call that our first homegrown salad of the year! Not usually a fan of radishes, I must admit their peppery leaves along with the bright sourness of the sorrel worked perfectly together to liven up our risotto.

Loved this interview with comedian Hasan Minhaj. (Have you seen/heard his remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner?)

Enjoyed this article about the writer’s grandparents and their garden.
