Article Excerpt:

The last couple weeks have been a bit hectic, and I haven't had time to blog. Now I'm back in Wisconsin for a long weekend to visit my grandparents and attend a friend's wedding, and am finding myself with a few free moments at my parents' house, so back to the blog, finally!  

Last night my dad grilled chicken breasts, seasoned with his homemade seasoning mix (he will be selling it soon! so good!). My mom and I threw together a couple delicious vegetable dishes. We made delicious broccoli rabe, sauteed with a lot of garlic, minced anchovies, olive oil and a little butter.  Craving something raw and orange, I also made a quick and delicious carrot salad. My mom loves making carrot ribbons, using the vegetable peeler to peel away long strips of carrot. Usually she sautes them, but I used them raw in this quick and easy salad.  It was crunchy and bright, and was a lot like eating pasta, because you could wind it up on your fork like tagliatelle.  Except it wasn't pasta, it was carrots!
