A Month of Side Dishes: Romeo and Julienned Vegetables
There once was a pepper named Romeo. He was in love with the fair Julienned, but alas, she was from another crisper. This is my somewhat twisted contribution to BlogHer's Month of Sides. I dare you to read the whole thing.
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
I wish I could've made my own julienned vegetables, but alas, I am no cook.
True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy.
I am but a far-too-busy blogger. Are you, too? Here, save yourself some time -- I found you these fun recipes incorporating Romeo and Julienne from the BlogHer Publishing Network food bloggers!
