New obsession: this sandwich.
Peel sweet potato, slice into 1/2 inch slices. Preheat oven (I used the toaster oven) to 400 degrees. Coat the sweet potato slices in grapeseed oil, lay out on foil, roast for about 25 minutes.

Butter whole wheat bread, arrange the sweet potato slices on it, sprinkle with feta cheese and a big handful of arugula, drizzle with honey, eat.

Things cooked in Austin for the 4th of July:

Lemon ice cream:
Heat 2 cups heavy cream with 1 cup sugar and stir to dissolve. Grate in the zest of 4 lemons. Let cool. Stir in juice of 3 lemons and a spoonful of vanilla extract. Freeze.

Roasted vegetable tart:
Mix together:
1 ¾ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup olive oil
4 tablespoons ice water
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
Line 2 9″ pie pans with the pastry.

Slice up a bunch of vegetables and roast them: 1 eggplant (450 degs 30 mins), 2 zucchini, 1/2 onion, 1/2 bell pepper, 6 small tomatoes. Layer them into the pie crusts with fresh parsley and basil and some lemon zest, then pour over 2 eggs beaten w/heavy cream, water, salt, and pepper, and sprinkle with feta. Chop and scatter 2 cloves garlic over the top.

Tuna pasta salad:
Mix together:
1 package cooked orzo
vinaigrette (lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt, pepper)
2 cans tuna
Fresh parsley
Fresh green onions
Hearts of palm
Cooked frozen peas
1/2 finely minced red onion

Makes an enormous quantity of pasta salad.
