It takes me eight hours to make a salad these days.
First I have to decide to make a salad. That takes awhile.
Then I have to pick things out of the garden for it: lettuce, spinach, radishes, carrots, and green onions.
I take a turn around the herb pots: thyme, mint, oregano, chives.
Then I have to carefully wash each individual leaf, because now that it's warm, everything is covered with tiny bugs.
I add dried cranberries, walnuts, good fatty salad dressing.
Grind on some black pepper.
Grate on some parmesan.
Then I spend three hours taking pictures of the salad.
And, finally - voila! Eight hours later, I'm eating the world's most temporally inefficient, economically unsustainable, and environmentally irresponsible salad.
And it's totally worth it.
