Tuesday's inspiration; easy eastside eats

Here's a new one: pass by that excellent restaurant I want to try soon (Ruby Watchco), read the daily menu posted in the window ($49 for 4 courses ... maybe next month), stop by their sister store (Ruby Eats) to pick up ingredients, go home and mimic their salad for supper. Oh, and round it out with a couple slices of St. Johns organic bread from the bakery on Broadview Avenue. I took home a delightful walnut and raisin loaf, plus a spelt loaf with a very pretty detail on the top.

Salad ingredients: baby greens, red onion, blue cheese, grape tomatoes, balsamic vinaigrette
