I forgot to take a photo of the main course, nicely grilled ribeye. My brother did an excellent job of grilling them up perfectly! While he was busy grilling away, I whipped up a batch of baby potatoes. I roasted them in the oven with a little oil, Hawaiian salt, pepper and rosemary. They turned out nice and crispy. Yum!
I was so full after our birthday dinner feast! Everything was delicious and most of all, Aubrey had a fantastic day!!

I also decided to make a first harvest of the Mizuna and Arugula. I will mix it into my salads for a little different flavor.
I made a quick harvest of some herbs to prevent my plants from bolting. Here are some parsley and cilantro. Be sure to check out the post this week on the Cilantro Lemon Shrimp I made with these herbs. It was quick and delicious!
This weeks's harvest totals:
- Leeks = 0.81 lb.
- Lettuce = 1.8 lb.
- Spinach = 0.11 lb.
- Mizuna/Arugula = 0.25 lb.
- Parsley/Cilantro = 0.14 lb.
- Chive blooms = not weighed

Earlier this year, I received a shipment of wine. It was a case of wine that was shipped in a styrofoam case. I though it was a wasteful use of resources since styrofoam isn't recyclable (other companies have used cardboard or recycled cardboard). But then it hit me, I could try to use it for something. It had 12 perfect holes. It was meant to be re-purposed.
1) 3 x Little Gem Lettuce
2) 3 x Prizehead Lettuce
3) 2 x Butterhead Lettuce + 1 x Osaka Purple Mustard Greens
4) 2 x Outredgeous Red Romaine Lettuce + 1 x Osaka Purple Mustard Greens

I was pretty full from the pizza but I couldn't resist dessert. I tried the Butterscotch Budino with Salted Caramel Sauce. OMG! This was soooo good!
If you're in the mood for casual Italian, be sure to check out Nostrana. The atmosphere is fun and the restaurant has a nice vibe. But whatever you order, be sure to save room for dessert. You won't be sorry!!
