Writing this blog has made me realize how carb-heavy and dense our dinners are. I do try to eat lighter during the day so we can have a satisfying, tummy-filling dinner together at night, but there is clearly a dearth of vegetables here and we need to do better. This is why I’m writing the blog though, to figure out the good and the bad! Something we could use more of is a vegetable side salad I made this week from Saveur, Cannellini Bean Salad with Radicchio and Celery. It is crisp and bright and easy to substitute if you don’t have everything. I used fresh lemon juice in place of the red wine vinegar and skipped the anchovies (even though I have them, next time I’ll try them.) I really enjoy dishes like this but rarely take the time to make them. A good reminder.
