There was a time in my life when all I ever craved was a DQ Oreo and Skor Blizzard. That time (and craving) is long gone.
It is mid-summer and my garden is popping out fresh deliciousness every day. Today the kids helped me pick a few things for our salad – parsley, leaf lettuce, baby kale, sorrel, sweet basil, arugula, snow peas, tomatoes and rapini flowers. If only you could smell these photos… *swoon*
It looks so basic and simple – and it IS – but the flavours… wow. My 5 year old said she “could eat nine hundred more” (we’ll have to expand the garden next year!)
I find that when kids are involved in making food (picking, mixing, etc.), they seem to be more excited to eat it. Rapini flowers actually have a pretty bitter taste, but the kids love to go to the garden and snack on them!
