|Taking the sting out of nettles for stinging nettle soup|
Last night was not an isolated incident, either. I now bake my own crusty loaf several days a week (thanks to Mark Bittman's New York Times article on Jim Lahey's revolutionary no-knead method), and am considering experimenting with baking sandwich bread for the kids' lunches. We took over a farm share from friends who moved away, and now have piles of greens that we have to figure out how to eat. So we saute a lot of greens and eat a ton of salad (with fresh crusty bread). This year we are growing our own tomatoes, peppers, onions, beans, peas, and arugula, and I'm looking forward to planting some Cinderella pumpkins from seed I saved last year.
In conclusion, this blog is not about food. However, I am personally all about food. So when you're wondering why I am not posting anything new on my blog, you'll know it's because I'm busy making cheese souffles to eat with the lovely fresh micro-greens that we are ready to harvest from our backyard garden.
