We’ve continued our greens at lunch routine and enjoyed these salad bowls over the weekend. Easy enough to pull together if you have taco fixings (rice, beans, salsa) around. In the winter I take advantage of my pickled red onion stash, radishes, and the roasted jalapeños that my freezer keeps nice and chilled for me.

Today’s CSA stash is glorious – kale, spinach, mixed salad greens, collards, carrots, turnips, parsnips, sweet potatoes, radishes, beets, broccoli, celery root, brussel sprouts, and green onions.

My cravings haven’t quite caught up with 60-70º temperatures either, so I have stews […]

A day late ’cause I couldn’t quite face the computer yesterday. After a few weeks of lots and lots of work, I am ready to hunker down in my kitchen in my pajamas and apron. I added a loose breakfast plan to the mix since the 8yo has been complaining just a wee bit about the lack of variety. Also adding some bread and baking; I can feel the hot weather creeping in and I […]
