I discovered Waitrose Kitchen magazine while in London with my family last week. I know, everyone always complains about British food.

It must be because of that love of gardening they are also known for.

We're back from a week in the UK and I am returning to some old British favorites. Stephanie Alexander is actually Australian, but this book follows the seasons of England and appears to be published there as well, which is a good enough connection for me.

Wheat Berry and Lentil Salad - june 24, 2010

My sister, who has for years been living off things like Doritos and Frito-Lay Bean Dip, recently joined a CSA in her town of Tucson, Arizona. She and my Mother share the subscription, and so far have been happily consuming most everything that comes their way, or so they tell me.
