recipes from the internet we’ve tried recently

1. Shrimp and broccoli rabe. We had a bunch of broccoli rabe ready to pick in the garden, so we wanted an easy recipe to try. I don’t think we got the rabe right- it turned out really crispy and nothing like the picture- but the shrimps were tasty.
2. Broccoli and kale pasta bake. Yummy. I thought I had the sauce part all wrong, but turned out just fine. Would make again.

3. Sardine pasta with lemon and garlic. We’ve been trying to incorporate sardines into our meals, and we made a version of this. It was actually pretty good, and little dude couldn’t eat enough of it.
4. Banana yogurt muffins. Weren’t my favorite. Probably won’t make again. Maybe it was the sunflower seeds we used?

we grew a carrot

Finally! After several seasons of trying, we’ve successfully grown an edible carrot! And just in time for the Easter bunny.

I’m planning on picking them all within the next week or two, to make way for pepper plants. What should we make with them?? I’m gonna try baby food, maybe roasting a handful, or just eat them plain. They smell so super carroty!

our best chard recipe

For the record, I hate the word chard. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the veggie until recently. It grows so easily and fast in our garden, so we keep trying to eat it in different ways. If you don’t think you can grow anything, try growing chard. We stumbled upon this healthy recipe, and we eat it at least once a week.

Chard that is healthy and not awful

1 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 big bunch chard, stems removed and chopped
1 can white beans

Heat a little olive oil over medium high heat. Add onion and pepper, cook about 5 minutes. Add garlic, then the chard, and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Then add the beans and cook until they are warm. Season with salt and pepper.
