The Avant Gardener’s Salad

The Avant Gardener’s Salad


I wanna grow tomatoes on the front steps. Sunflowers, bean sprouts, sweet corn and radishes.
This is what Courtney Barnett is planning in her song Avant Gardener before her day takes a bad turn. I imagine that things got better and she was able to plant that garden eventually so the neighbors would stop thinking that they have a meth lab in the house. Then one day after the garden grew, she made this sweet salad with the harvest.

Canadian Bacon Shell Tacos

Canadian Bacon Shell Tacos

I had this idea by mistake, I meant to heat up a slice of canadian bacon in the oven and I totally forgot about it! When I remembered later, I grabbed it from the oven and it was totally solid. But not like all burnt or anything, it was a nice texture but firm. When brainstorming what to put into a Canadian Bacon taco shell, my first thought was a pickle salsa, because I love the taste of pickles with ham and cheese. I also wanted to put on plenty of lettuce to freshen it up a little. It all came together quick and easy with these slices of Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon.

Cuban Sandwich Dip

Cuban Sandwich Dip

About a year or so ago, I was on a mission to change every famous sandwich into a dip. I made a few awesome dips out of sandwiches, but it hasn’t been a feature on here for awhile. Today I am announcing that its back! There are a few more neat ideas up my sleeve for this feature, but for now, a more obvious one that I missed earlier. I love Cuban sandwiches and have played with the flavors a few times in the past, but this dip was the true essence of a Cuban in a nice bite sized form.
