Dirtiest Husband in the World, "Tell the people on your blog that if you keep the peas picked the plant will produce more."
Me: "Grumm grumm grumm" stuffing as many just picked sugar snap peas into my mouth as possible.
See that's me- always helpful, just trying to get the plant to produce.
My sister-in-law has this idea of the year of the ______ new food. Which is a year she first learned to love a food she had never liked before or had never had before. For example, she has the year of the mango and the year of the pomegranate.
For me, I think this is the year of the kale. I had never had it before 2010 and hot damn- its amazing. We make massaged kale salad. Something sounds wrong about that, but we cut up raw kale into thin strips, throw in some oil, and massage it up. This keeps in the nutrients but breaks up some of the hard texture. Then we add in vinegar, agave, and mustard. I like to throw some sesame seeds in too. Grum grum grum. Whole foods has some new asinine food rating system that I haven't taken the time to understand, but on their number system, kale is the wunderkid of food. I can believe that. Sesame seeds are on the list too. What's not to like? If only this system would add in an allowance for chocolate - we'd all be alright.
What will be your food of 2010?
