It is a truth universally acknowledged that the tinier something is, the more adorable it is perceived to be. See: babies, human; babies, animals; and vegetables, tiny potatoes. As seen in the photo above, tiny potatoes are delicious roasted in olive oil, salt, and mixed herbs (I cooked them for about 50 minutes at 375 degrees). I found mine at Whole Foods.
A few pieces on the Dakota Fanning of summer vegetables here, here, and here. I’m most excited about the last one, which uses lemon.
Serving an entire meal of baby vegetables as part of an elaborately staged hint to tell your husband you’re expecting, a la Rebecca in Full House is optional.
