Foraging in the garden
With our garden came some unexpected pleasure: foraging. There is something deeply satisfying about peeking out the back window and seeing the kids picking over the strawberries, hoping that they missed one from the last time.

And mid afternoon, when I am feeling a bit peckish myself, what can be more wholesome than this? Freshly picked spinach, leaf lettuce, mesculun thinnings, green onion and snow pea. . .from garden to fork in less than ten minutes.

It could, perhaps, use a bit of red. But as you can see, the kids pretty much dashed any hopes of a strawberry or two for the salad.

When they were done there, they realized I was heading to the snow peas and had the nerve to race me for them!

But that, my dear readers, is a snack that works for me.
