|caramelized pancetta and fennel salad|
Okay, so maybe this post should be titled "dinner last week" because truth be told, for dinner last night, I stood in front of the refrigerator eating leftover grilled ciabatta smeared with leftover artichoke dip. Hey, that's the way it goes some nights. Anyway, I've been looking for some "salad inspiration" of late as I love a good salad, but seem to be in a bit of rut. I tried this recipe from Giada. I made a few minor alterations and it did not disappoint. Sparky liked it too (although I think he might have been thinking, "What's the second course, hon?") Ice cream is always a good second (third, fourth, fifth) course. Just sayin'.
