garden goodness: kale and fresh garlic
Are you a kale hater? I was, too. It’s the store bought stuff, you see, that’s no good. As Daniel’s aunt, who is also a masterful gardener, opined, that stuff tastes like turpentine. She gave us some of her homegrown kale this afternoon and told us how to cook it. She also gave us some fresh garlic – I had not considered cooking with fresh garlic, rather than the dried kind from the store – and we went right home and cooked it all. The result? Absolutely delightful.
I’m a believer, y’all. And since Daniel’s new gardening project – in his truck bed! – will, we hope, yield lots of yummy produce, I’m looking forward to coming up with many more garden-to-table dishes this summer.
