Lunch Favorites

I had time, motivation and ingredients for a good lunch today.

Time: done with the trip to the dump this morning, including dropping off the very old, used lawn mower.

Motivation: 1. hungry  2. bread was a week old  3. cooked beets needed to be used

Ingredients: Lots of favorites, including whole wheat levain, multiple packages/varieties of micro greens from NYC Greenmarket, the best Halloumi cheese, leftover roasted peppers and radicchio, and a bottle of red wine opened two days ago.

Result: A large bowl of salad, with cubed beets, micro greens, Halloumi cheese, chopped black Turkish olives, and diced Vidalia onion, plus a sandwich of juicy roasted peppers and radicchio with a little feta cheese on pan-sautéed slices of whole grain bread.  Accompanied by a few glasses of a Tuscan wine from a Grenache-Mourvedre blend.
