Saladish (& Friday Links)

This cover of Ilene Rosen’s new cookbook makes me want to go make a salad right now! Rosen spent the last two decades as City Bakery’s savory chef, and knows how to get flavors working together, so I’m excited to check out her new book, Saladish, which is organized (no surprise) seasonally, but which also includes party menus that help you turn the recipes into table spreads.

This weekend, we’re celebrating a local holiday—Picnic Day—which is like UC Davis’ open house. It can get a little rowdy downtown in the evening, but the daytime is great for families with bug encounters, cow-milking, frisbee tournaments, doxie derby races, marching bands, and tractor parades… just to name a few things. Every department puts on a show and I’ve been going off and on for twenty years now! It’s also a good time of year to see what’s in bloom at the arboretum.

Have a great weekend!
