    I imagine I'd like the fig salad. All of the fig postings have really put me in a mood to eat some figs, but I don't feel like leaving home. Color me sad.

    with the razor clams, is that sea weed that they're plated on?

    Thank you. The sauce is also a nasty color. Did you puree the sorrel, strain it? You should just add it at the last second and leave it in. Basically all you can do with sorrel. Also, halibut is a very light fish for something as strong as sorrel. Might want to go stronger next time.

    Ya. I added some chervil to try to give a better color. Obviously, it didn't work.

    I thought the halibut went nicely, but what do I know.

    Sorrel goes brown and gross, but that is part of its charm. You generally leave it in the sauce as a garnish rather than pureeing and turning the nice white sauce brown. Live and learn, though. The halibut might have been great with it, you would know better than me, but I generally think of sorrel as something really acidic which cuts fat nicely.

    Sorrel is one of the few green vegetables I prefer raw.

    The razor clams look hard to eat. How'd you attack? Pincer motion?

    Did you leave the skins on the beets? I can't tell from the photo.

    Nah. They actually came out a little too salty. I always make things too salty the first time I try salt roasting them. The chicken wasn't juicy enough either. Might use thighs next time. The sauces were all great. Also I realized that I eat olives almost as much as you eat figs.

    The beets have a lime juice, acacia honey, grapeseed oil sauce that matt posted (it was greener than it looks in the photo). The chicken had the curry sauce recipe from Simply French. I added more after we started eating. It was really delicious and the chicken was not very special. The herb and salad greens have a simple vinaigrette.

    yeah. It came out a little spicy for me so I mixed in a teaspoon of sugar and it was perfect. Have a ton left for the week too.

    what part of the chicken did you use? It might have more flavor if you used thighs, skin-on. You're just making yakitori there.

    I had a metric ton of that beet sauce left over.
