I’m so nostalgic at this time of year. "The last of the chard! The last of the __________!" (Whatever it might be.) But really, when the garden/farmer’s market stuff is gone, you have a choice: buy from the supermarket or wait until next summer to eat some of these things. Sure, I froze quite a few items, but that will only last so long. And as for chard, this is it.
We served it with the chickpea flatbread that is so awesome – recipe courtesy of the New York Times, and stored on my other computer, but posted in the past.
So yeah, here it is….
We’ve just returned from the high school, where this year’s musical was South Pacific. As usual, they did a wonderful job – each year, in my mind, is almost better than the last. I feel a little mixed about South Pacific, which I’ve always loved, and it does send messages of racial acceptance, etc….. while simultaneously going for laughs with stereotypical depictions of Asians. Can South Pacific stand the test of time?
