What's for Dinner, Wed., May 26, 2021 [View all]

I started off by having an appetizer of "veggie tacos" with the 8 children in my after-school gardening class. We always eat a vegetable and then we go plant it.

Today was school-grown lettuce with daikon radish filling. On top was bagel seasoning and Ranch salad dressing. The lettuce is the "taco shell" and the daikon, a very mild radish, is the filling. I earlier sliced the daikon on the mandoline, put in ice water to chill it. The daikon is very crispy when done this way.

It is so much fun to see children say "I want more," "Please give me more radish." I have one little boy who professes to hate vegetables but he sat at the table for half an hour eating lettuce leaves! All of them, every single one, loved the veggie tacos. I try to do vegetables they've never heard of.

OK, so that was my appetizer. Now as for what I'm having later, it will be eggplant parmesan.

And for dessert, rustic berry tart with cold iced tea.

p.s. in this case we won't be planting the daikon until school resumes in the fall because it is a cold weather crop.
