Okay, because I'm in the early stages of trying to figure out what I'm doing with regard to pictures, the chronological order of these pictures is off, but I did manage to get the pictures (a) downloaded off the camera onto the computer (a process which took the better part of forever) and (b) uploaded here.
The top one, I made last night, and served over pasta. It has spring leeks, a handful of fava beans, red chard, and pattypan squash, as well as a generous sprinkling of basil and Romano cheese. I sauteed/braised the leeks for 10-15 minutes, then tossed in the fava beans which I'd shelled (with considerable help from Annie), blanched, and peeled again (fava beans, worth the trouble, or not? the jury's out); I sauteed the squash over relatively high heat and let it get really brown and caramelized; the chard I sauteed after the leeks and favas were done and transferred to another bowl.
The bottom one is salad greens with the herb-vinaigrette-marinated beans, radishes and feta on top, as well as toasts made from the bread I baked over the weekend -- the bread I have yet to write about, but I haven't forgotten.
