Also from his site, this awesome chopped salad has been this week's meal. The dressing is out of this world. I forgot to add hardboiled eggs, used a rotisserie chicken, shredded a bunch of the veggies, used broccoli and hated the addition of blue cheese. So versatile, you could do any combination with this one.
Lastly, I missed this series of Mark Bittman (my minimalist food guru) in Iowa over the spring. He was visiting various farms in the state. Good series of articles. These are real problems in Iowa, which means they are real problems for this country.
