A is For Arugula

Yippieeee...the arugula is finally leafing out. The weather has been so chilly that the seeds I've planted seem to be slow to sprout. Arugula is probably my favorite green. A few years ago when I was in Italy with some friends I had a grilled steak and arugula salad...it was yummyyy. As soon as I have enough arugula to make that salad you bet I'm going to be marinating a fine cut of beef, throwing it on the grill, slicing it and serving it up to The Husband. He will ask me if I want his "green stuff" and "did you make any potatoes?"

Ahhh....you can put it on a plate but can you make them eat it?



Quilldancer has a photo challenge this month that I'm hoping to participate in. For each day of the month you post a letter of the alphabet, since today is the 1st the letter is A, tomorrow will be B....and so on, and so on....

I'm having fun with the photo challenges lately, I think a big part of that is because spring is usually pretty overwhelming for me with all of the garden chores, dreams and ideas. Participating in the challenges is like accepting an assignment, it points me in a direction but allows me freedom of interpretation. Comments from other bloggers who are participating in the same challenge has been a delightful bonus. Wanna play along?

Arugula! Yes! I love a salad with personality. Great start for the Alphabet Challenge!

I don't believe I've ever HAD arugula! I'm going to have to look for it -- do they carry it in regular grocery stores? (or... does it go by another name?) I LIKE that shot -- very simple - but very... homey!
