Happy Monday everyone!

I looked in my fridge for the first time since my test yesterday-oh my.  I was down to 1 granny smith and a few carrots.  

I ate the apple with my all-bran at breakfast

After my latest appointment with the medical profession I wtuation. to the produce market and correct this situation.

This week-I’m looking at doing some different things with green veggies-which are bountiful and priced right during the summer.

If you’ve read my musings here you know I love to grill,roast and steam my veggies in that order of preference.  

What do you like to do with your greens?  Since I’m heading out the door-I will let you know that Friday-I’ll be sharing some of my family’s favorite “green” side dish recipes.

I’d really love it if some of you would add to the “pile“.  I’m sure we all would love to have something new to eat!

    • I was born with a love of greens - even when I was a kid my mom never had to work to get me to eat them!

      One of my favorite ways to eat my favorite green - Kale - is to saute it quickly in a hot pan with olive oil and garlic and a few chili flakes, pile them on a plate and top them with a poached egg.

      there’s another version of that dish I’ve had in a french restaurant. The greens are curly endive (frisee) salad with a hot dressing of bacon and capers and then topped with a poached egg.

    • One thing I like to do is with baby spinach
      Take a pan put some olive oil in it before it gets too hot
      Add some sliced garlic atleast 3 cloves.
      Add 1 pat of butter.
      1/4 cup of sliced red peppers,
      add 1 pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
      1lb of baby spinach - add to pan in 1/2 lb batches
      Let spinach wilt, stir and servce. Great with broiled chicken, couscous and lettuce and tomato salad. You may salt to taste. I don’t use salt.

    • Everything sounds yummy! I love steamed kale or broccoli with a small amount of sesame seed oil. It is nice and light.
