Dinner: Monday, April 27, 2009

Think: Thai lettuce wraps. But with gorgeous, misshapen, market-fresh spinach leaves.

And some pickled vegetables, namely the end of a jar of Sunja’s medium spicy radish kimchee and a couple of Ba-Tempte bread & butter sweet pickle chips — both of which are so, so tasty — in the place of mung bean sprouts.

COST: >$5
PREP TIME: Meandering wander home, via USQ greenmarket and Whole Foods
