Heap o' Greens
I was gifted some fresh garden greens the other day. Here they are, a mixed heap of turnip and mustard greens, awaiting their fate.
It's a good thing I have a stock pot. I was able to subdue and blanch those green little buggers in only 3 batches.
My 3 batches gave me 3 quarts of ready to use greens.
I used one baggy for our dinner Friday evening, a remake of my Spinach and Chicken Enchiladas, substituting the greens for the spinach. It worked beautifully!
A Little Bit of Lovely
My new friend Kys, over at Stir Fry Awesomeness, gifted me with the following award:
I had seen this lovely award around the blogosphere since the day I first began blogging. Never did I ever imagine that someone would find my blog worthy enough of this honor. Thank you, Kys! Oh, and if anyone of you haven't had the opportunity, please jump over to visit her HERE. I think you'll find her quite amusing.
I'd like to pass this on to a couple of blogs I recently discovered and to a dear bloggy friend.
First the new:
Julie at My Good Babushka
Julie is an artist and I find her works in progress quite intriguing, especially her "Early Americana" series. If you have a love for the art, please check out her work.
Heather at The Extraordinary Ordinary
Heather has such a beautiful grace and style in her writings. Her posts are touching and thought provoking. She's well worth the visit.
And the old:
I cannot rave enough about my friend Michelle's website, The Domestic Mama This link will direct you to the website she just developed. I'm sure you'll agree that her food photography is absolutely stunning! Presently, however, commentary is closed. You can always jump over to her blogspot to post any comments you might have.
Have You Heard of Tim Hawkins?
I, only recently, discovered his comedic talent. He's a riot! I'd like to share with you 2 of his videos that had me actually LOL'ing. Enjoy.
Have a wonderful Monday, dear friends!
