Joe Limardi and I recently went head to head in a chicken parm battle we called, "PARMEGEDDON!"  Joe was the clear winner.  His Italian roots were too much for this French / Irish hybrid.  To his credit, he agreed to try my veggie / mac salad that admittedly looks like a bad Jackson Pollock painting.

Here's the story behind this latest creation from the Sullivan kitchen - it was a very long day.  I worked here at the station until late afternoon, then went to hot yoga with A-Train, got home and remembered that we had a company picnic the next day.  I had agreed to bring in "veggie salad," as specified on the sign up sheet.  I didn't have good lettuce in the house, so I decided to improvise.

I sauteed summer squash and zucchini with a little evoo, salt and pepper, cooked some pasta, celery, parm cheese aaaaaand...... A PACKAGE OF NEAR EAST TABOULEH WHEAT SALAD.

It's delicious!  Joe tried some yesterday and he liked it!
