Yesterday we decided to eat solely from the backyard. I woke up with grand ambitions of making a carrot top puree that I read about last year in my sister-in-law's blog: Arielle Clementine. Obviously, by lunchtime, my self awareness kicked in and I realized that I was much too lazy to make that. (Maybe someday?) Thus an veggie omelet happened and it was good.
First we took inventory. What did we have?
- Beet Greens
- Malabar Spinach
- Carrots of all Colors
- Butternut Squash
- Amaranth Greens
- Green and Purple Beans
- Southern Peas
Surely, we could make something happen with that.
Breakfast: Cantaloupe and berries. (And coffee.)
Lunch: Spinach Omelet and Green Beans
Dinner: Butternut Squash, Sauteed Beets and Carrots, Tomatoes and Corn.
It was delicious and very local and lovely.
Am I motivated to go another week? Not quite yet- maybe soon.
