Harvest meals: Early spring

Garden meal: lettuce, snap peas, eggs.
 "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients." - Julia Child
As the season progresses, I'm finding that more and more of our meals feature produce from our garden.  In fact, for over a week, we've been eating at least one meal a day that came MOSTLY from the garden.

Here are the most frequent harvest-heavy meals as of late (you might notice a trend):

  • Wilted/fried collards with eggs (poached, over easy or sunny side up)
  • Sauteed kale with eggs
  • Fresh garden salad with snap peas
  • Fresh garden salad with eggs 

Believe it or not, we aren't bored of these meals, even though we're eating one of them every day.  I mix things up by flavoring the greens in different ways (topped with sauces, chutneys, sauteed with garlic), and by using different dressings on the salads.  But really, it is the fresh ingredients that make a world of difference.


  1. It looks delicious - great job!

  2. Appreciate that you note we can keep the cooking simple. I love cooking, as long as I don't have to feel intimidated about it....
