Greetings from my garden home,
Today I am sharing my lunch with you! Every year I grow collards in my garden but because there is always so much else to choose from in the summer, we don't eat much of them till after the frost, which is when they are at their peak or so they say. My favorite time to eat them however is NOW when they are preparing to go to seed. I think if they were strong enough to make it under all that snow for 4 months of freezing weather they deserve a bit of glory now when they are beautiful ready to be harvested greens that resemble broccoli rabe.
So how do I cook them you ask? My favorite way to cook all greens is sauteed with garlic and olive oil. Only today I needed it to be my whole lunch and since I skipped breakfast, I was really hungry so protein was in order.
Upon remembering the great baby bella mushrooms and the baby zucchini I bought at the vegetable stand yesterday, 3 cloves of garlic and of course an onion and I'm thinking there is one chicken sausage left from the other night, yes I know a great lunch is at hand. Then I assembled, washed and chopped everything and now I was ready....
This is cooking, smells so good..........and looks delightful... just a little time and patience and then ..... it is done! Here is a shot of my delicious very nutritious lunch in the making. Thanks for joining me and come again soon.
Bon Appe'tit !From my Garden
