A couple of weeks ago we decided to stain the front deck and surprisingly both kids were eager to help out. They did an awesome job! It was great to be outside and to be productive.
Later in the day my cousin dropped by with a selection of fresh picked vegetables from their garden.
It is fair to say that I have no excuses for not eating salads as I have a great supply of mixed leaf lettuce.
We decided to sautée the Swiss chard with balsamic vinegar, sliced garlic, and sunflower seeds to add some crunch. We had decided to try cooking the stems as well, but they were pretty strong. Maybe next to we'll stick to the leaf only, like we usually do.
