Sautéed Dandelion Greens

I live in dandelion central. As soon as the weather turned warm, every yard in my neighborhood was so covered in dandelions that at a glance up or down the street, yellow was the first color that caught your eye. It was beautiful. In my own yard and in the flower garden I haven’t been able to work in yet, dandelions are growing at an amazing rate. So, I decided to try out this eating weeds thing.

These are SO good for you. I had no idea until I ran the nutritional analysis. Look at the bottom of the post here and see all of the amazing nutrition that you can find in a handful of weeds you can pick out of your own yard.

Freezing Sweet Peppers

My garden is exploding with sweet peppers now. I’m getting all different colors – orange, purple, green. I can’t pick them fast enough.

The easiest way I’ve found to preserve them is to simply freeze them. The problem is, though, that they’re full of liquid. So, if you sliced them and tossed them into a freezer bag, what you’ll end up with is a big frozen ball of peppers all stuck together.

Green & Gold Casserole

I graduated from Spencer High School, home of the mighty Greenwave. Don’t ask me what that means – in all of my years there, I was never able to figure that out. Our mascot was an owl. BUT, our colors were green & gold. That was always cool, because my family is from Springfield, Oregon, a small town that is a sister-city to Eugene Oregon, home of the Oregon Ducks – whose colors are also green & gold. Which is what makes this casserole so much fun. I could take it to a class reunion or a football party and be a winner either way.

Sweet Squash Squares

These were SOOOO yummy. And, such a nice break from a zucchini bread kind of sweet with squash. Gregg said that it was too sweet, but I gave him a large piece. When I cut the piece sizes to about the size of fudge, they were the perfect size.

The Garden: Week 2

This has been an off week for the garden. The highs every day have been about 50 degrees (last week the highs were about 85 degrees), and it has been raining. I think Tuesday night, the low was 43, and some part of my brain worried that it would drop to freezing. Kind of hard for this girl from Florida to take the third week of May.

The Dirty Dozen

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) performed more than 43,000 tests for pesticides on various types of produce in thousands of samplings. Their computer analysis revealed that consumers could reduce their exposure to pesticides by almost 90 percent by avoiding just the most contaminated fruits and vegetables. They came up with a list of the most pesticide-laden produce varieties.
