Now that the Peapod man has refilled my long-empty stock of fresh produce, it's time for some garden salad, mixed with the bluest of cheese dressing. Besides the usual leaf lettuce, carrots, celery and tomatoes, I find some sliced green onions give the whole assemblage a pleasant bite.

Feel free to complement the salad with some delicious Edam (upper left corner), previously encased in red wax.

Cream of watercress soup at home, with a couple of recent book acquisitions. You can find recipes at, Epicurious (with scallops and leeks) and the Food Network (a cold version from Wolfgang Puck).

Very tasty, I must say. If you happen to have some chicken stock, olive oil, onions, cream, lemon juice and salt and pepper handy, I recommend throwing some together. Oh, and watercress. You'll probably need some of that too.
