The last of the Arugula

handful of fresh arugula

This is my first blog post. I thought it would be an apple recipe I have been wanting to make (I LOVE apples). But I have decided if I ever want to get this blog up and running I just need to start with things I make everyday. I have spent so many hours trying to find the right look for my blog (still not happy on that front) that I haven’t added any content. So, for my first post I’ll tell you about a great  lunch I made with arugula from my garden.


After a warm fall, the colder weather seems to have finally settled in. It is November in Connecticut after all. With just a little arugula left growing in our community garden plot, I decided it was time to harvest what I had and close the garden for the winter. I walked away with a beautiful handful of baby arugula. Just enough to put on a sandwich.

After rooting around in my fridge, I pulled out the makings of a yummy lunch, including some fresh baked no-knead bread (I’ve been experimenting… more to come on that in a later post). The ingredient list: Sliced bread, dijon mustard, red onion, sliced turkey, apples, brie cheese and of course  my arugula.

To make my lunch, I spread the mustard on my two slices of bread. Then I layered on each bread slice some very thin slices of the red onion, turkey, apples slices, arugula and brie.

Under the broiler it goes. In 2 minutes the cheese is melted.

Finally I eat!
