…of my Father’s Day lunchtime panino is shown below.
Today was the opening of one of the local farmer’s markets, so I went this morning to get the available veggies. There were a few good ones: young mustard greens, garlic scapes, young kohlrabi, red and yellow beets, and small spring onions. They are in the next post — suppertime. This one is about lunch: a grilled panino of roasted red peppers, olive paste, arugula from my garden, and Jarlsberg cheese on 7-grain bread. I was so hungry, I ate most of it until I got to the last two bites, which I could photograph (poorly) to show you. It was accompanied by a small salad of crudités, made with carrots, celery, artichoke hearts, the kohlrabi, daikon radish, and a little olive paste.
I didn’t weigh the three thin slices of Jarlsberg, but I suspect I violated my vegan way by about 15 grams of cheese, not a very serious infraction. The wine was a 2010 Villa Creek Gathers No Moss — James Berry Vineyard — 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah blend, a perfect fruity complement to the sweet peppers and the grilled bread with dates imbedded in it.
