|A mix of broccoli florets and Lamb's Quarters greens. The key to picking Lamb's Quarters is to just pinch off the growing tips (maybe the top two-inches) of actively growing plants.|
|Chicken, sweet corn and greens to be served over rice.|
|As reported earlier, I made an early morning trip to Wyoming. I swung through Hastings to visit Bob's Gunshop. I also stopped at a bakery to kill a little bit of time.|
|Physical therapy. Each counter is 800 feet. Fifty minutes to walk that distance on Thursday. Thirty-six minutes on Friday. That is big-time progress.|
|I got the recoil starter on the tiller repaired and installed. And then it rained. I was reduced to mowing between the rows. I will hand pull to clean up the tall weeds between the plants.|
Thanks for the tip on harvesting Lamb's Quarters. Pretty much same for harvesting prickly pear pads.ReplyDelete
The small, thin pads that are about the size of the palm of your hand will be tender to eat. A small fillet knife helps de-spine the pads - that step is a must. Eaten raw, tastes like a tart apple. Cooked, tastes like green beans. We cut up into 1/4" squares and fry with eggs.
Hope the wedding event is enjoyable. Don't over do on the dancing (break dancing not recommended). :^)
Any way I can get the recipe cor the chicken/sweetcorn over rice?ReplyDelete
That is tough because it was a little bit of this and little bit of that process.Delete
Saute garlic and onions in the oil/fat of your choice. Throw in chicken. I used a single breast that I had marinated with soy sauce, ginger, cayanne and a bit of sugar. Toss in to cook with the onions and garlic. Then wilt the broccoli tips and greens. Fold in about a cup of frozen sweet corn. Mix some masa and water with what was left with the marinate to make a gravy.
Enjoy the wedding! And yes, people are getting paranoid about pictures... sighReplyDelete
Cinnamon rolls are hugely popular "out here". Some are just "OK" and some are just heavenly.ReplyDelete
