My wife and I have been eating a mostly plant-based diet, with limited dairy and fish, for most of this year and enjoying the adventure.
Recently, however, I noticed that 1 1/2 pounds of ground grass-fed beef from Marin Sun Farms was taking up space in our freezer. We bought this a while ago when en route back from a hike at Point Reyes. Seeing as how the cow had already emitted whatever green house gases cows emit and I didn't want to waste food, I decided to make a simple beef bolognese, learning something about fresh herbs in the process.
I found a number of recipes online that took 4 to 5 hours. I modified one I found from Bon Appetit, which was quite basic. I have to admit, this tasted good. Maybe I will do this again annually.
And now for a quick lesson on herbs:
