I am so sorry I am waxing poetic, it has not been a bad day. I just kept busy and just as I was about to relax and Spark I had some better new plans.
It was our GD's 10th Birthday on Wednesday but I could not catch up with them so I missed it. I did send her a talking card. I knew she had received it my computer told me so. Her Mothers (MY DDIL) Birthday was today.
Our son called and talked to his Dad and I made a plan to call later as he was driving to meet her. I called at the appointed time but they were still at their birthday function so I was playing PHONE TAG as they were playing LAZER TAG.
I caught up with them and our Plattsburgh son called to check on us. I had to call him back I knew he was concerned about the storm news. So long phone conversations a rarity for us, it was nice, It was family
I baked and cooked three sets of greens and cauliflower just so they did not go to waste.
Brussels Sprouts-easy to do, cabbage easy to do and collards-now that stuff is such a challenge I am determined to teach my taste buds to like it.
I steamed it,it was still tough.
I added lemon juice and olive oil and microwaved it- still tough.
I had other dishes in the oven so I added some Rice vinegar and wine vinegar to some of the collards and baked it in the oven till everything else was cooked.
It tasted great like beet greens but so much tougher. I think now that my tongue has the message that this is tough my taste buds are learning to like it.
We ate flounder with Cauliflower and cheese.
Shredded cabbage cooked with smart balance and black pepper -DH favourite way to have it.
I made some of the cauliflower in to a puree with egg whites and Parmesan cheese and put Collards in the bottom and spread the topping.
It baked to golden brown and it was great .
DH still does not like collards, but we can do this.
