We've eaten a lot of pasta-and this week. We had rice-and one day, too. So I had a long day at work and am looking at another one tomorrow and didn't want to think about what to make for supper. But I'd used up all my easy things (see sentences above) and besides I wanted to eat something healthy and yummy. Possibly fried.
So I wandered out to the garden to see what I could eat. It was a garden of eden out there. Spring onions. Rainbow chard. A cabbage. Snow peas. Broccoli.
I sauteed (well, it is kind of frying) the onions, then threw in the stems of the chard, while chopping up the cabbage. That went in, too, at least part of it did.
Some left-over chicken went into the happy cast-iron skillet. Toss, add some fresh cracked pepper.
After eating that, I steamed the broccoli and the peas separately, and we can eat those tomorrow.
I'm full, happy, delirious to have so much good stuff in the back yard. And it ain't even tomato season yet.
