more yellow:)

Daffodils and Polkadots, available on eBay 5x7

As you may or may not know, I get a box of organic veggies deleivered once a week and I am loving it! I like supporting local businesses and eating well:) In this week's box was a gorgeous bunch of red swiss chard. So pretty I could have plopped it into a vase and been happy. I made the most delicious recipe with it and am jotting it here so I have it.

Red chard sliced horizontally in strips sans stalks. (rinsed)
Saute 1 big chopped onion and 2 chopped garlic cloves in coconut oil till softened and pale gold, add swiss chard, 1/4 cup golden raisins, steam and saute till softened, add splash of basalmic vinegar. It was DELICIOUS!

I had taped Lost from the night before and my daughter and I sat down to watch it. She got me hooked a while ago, I don't really watch a lot of tv. The more confusing it gets, the better we like it. I love all the characters and the locale and the mysteriousness of it all:)

Tonight is a birthday party for an 80 year old!
