this week i attended 1.5 concerts:
i saw them, and they blew
i also went to see her, but
due to a severe reaction
to the metro
we left during her opening act,
a dj who bore a striking
resemblance to Robert Downy Jr.
i wish i could say i'm sad i missed the show,
but i'm not.
i can say i'm disappointed tho.
i heard she didn't even take the stage until
school night & illness aside,
i'm a stickler for being
and as such i present this salad,
a Pile, really,
of csa ingredients mixed
with bulgur wheat,
dressed simply with
olive oil + lemon juice.
just in time for autumn,
quick to put together,
best slowly savored
while you listen to music that is
in addition to The Carpenter album,
which was on heavy rotation last month,
might i suggest

Roasted Butternut Squash Bulgur Wheat Salad
1 cup of cooked bulgur wheat prepared based on package instructions (no need to soak over night)
1 small butternut squash
juice of 1 lemon
small green pepper, diced
salt/pepper to taste
cube up butternut squash (or you can buy it pre-chopped). what i normally do is cut it half and roast in oven for 17-20 minutes at 350F, to soften the meat until easy to cut.
drizzle some olive oil, season with salt/pepper and finish roasting the cubes in oven for another 15 minutes, or until tender.
meanwhile, cook up the bulgur wheat according to package instructions. you can use regular water or if you want to get fancy, use broth/stock.
chop up green pepper (at this point, depending on what you have handy, add whatever vegs you want)
mix everything in a bowl, drizzle olive oil + lemon juice. serve warm or cold.
