Our garden is suddenly taking off. Yesterday, we had lots of chard and beet green thinnings to ponder, and fortunately Andrea had posted this recipe AND we had most of the ingredients! We used buckwheat soba instead of udon, and regular tomatoes for grape, but otherwise we had everything… and it was marvelous. One of those dishes you just can’t stop eating!
On Saturday, we had a mini-North Farm Cooperative reunion at Steve and Marina’s house. We had a great time listening to the former Farmers reminisce about the good old (or bad) days, and the food was great. We were challenged to bring something leftover from North Farm (a natural foods distributor in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s), and my contribution was wild rice. (Below are the leftovers we had on Sunday, with added kale and served with our first string beans!) The best part of our visit was Steve and Marina’s urban homestead, where they do more than we do on our 15 acres! Check out their blog…. which I think they should update, don’t you?
Tomorrow I’ll post the recipe for Roya’s Wisdom-Teeth-Extraction-Recuperation Chocolate Pudding. Yesterday she had SIX impacted wisdom teeth removed. Whatever happened to the theory that as humans evolve and our mouths are smaller, we are phasing out those extra teeth? Luckily everything went fine and she is at home, on drugs 🙂
