Collard greens, lechon kawali and plantain
A lovely morning harvesting some leafy greens while listening to the birds sing their morning songs. Then on to the kitchen to prepare a Filipino dish called "lechon kawali" which is pork belly boiled in whole peppercorns and bay leaves, then fried until very crispy. For the side dishes, I sauteed collard greens and kale in olive oil and thinly sliced garlic. A dash of salt and a sprinkle of pepper flakes. I also fried some plantain and steamed three cups of Jasmine rice. That was Sunday lunch!
Colorful backyard harvest for dinner
Gardening with kids is loads of fun! Come join me and Josh harvest some vegetables and fruits from our backyard garden for dinner. We have chioggia beetroot, Parisian carrots, freckled lettuce, Nagami kumquats, Valencia orange, broccoli, potatoes and teeny tiny radishes. Let's pick some flowers too, chamomile and nasturtiums. They are edible flowers, but let's put them on the vase this time and then lit a candle. Dinner is served!
