Off to the farmers market

My brother is coming into town on Thursday and I want to fix a birthday dinner for him and my family.

My plan is to start dinner with a kale, apple and almond salad. I have made this salad a couple of times and I hoping my family will love it.

For the main course, I found a recipe for roasted vegetable baked ziti that looks challenging, but doable. I have never roasted vegetables, but this seems like a good time to learn.

For dessert, I am using Giada De Laurentiis’ tiramisu recipe. It was the bittersweet chocolate shavings sprinkled on top that convinced me to make this dish.

I have my shopping list and I am off to the Culver City Farmers Market to get the produce I will need.
