it is finally that time of year when cool season leafy green crops are coming in waves again. but, even as a mainly herbivorous minded eater, i can only tolerate so many salads. luckily, i have a diffusion process that i call quiche eating. my garden is still inundated with rainbow colored stalks of swiss chard, kale, and spinach. these plants are cold hearty and can tolerate temperatures as low as fifteen degrees which is great news for my belly and lucrative for local farmers. i work with and for farmers- greens are never lacking in my kitchen. while my original recipe is made with spinach, i have been experimenting with the other green things that seem to be reproducing up here in growing zone 6b! think turnip greens, beet greens, and kohlrabi greens. this recipe is versatile and lends itself to experimentation which is one reason that it has been part of my repertoire for a decade.

It wasn’t easy getting a reservation at Salt of the Earth, so when I finally secured a spot for last Thursday evening, I was excited. We arrived at 8pm sharp, and were greeted by a very friendly hostess. As she was checking on our table, I looked around, and was extremely impressed with the layout of the restaurant.
