ah, sunny but brisk

wind is up today, but in a little-ripply way rather than a big-waves way. the treetwigs are stirring vigorously. i burned my kale for the 3rd time last night, i just can't seem to get it right. what will i try today? cukes and red pepper salad, can't go wrong w/ that, nothing to cook on an unfamiliar electric stove. what is the etymology of "stove" anyway. i'll have to check but am afraid to leave my post here in blogland to check lest i lose this little passage, humble as it is. the cape is so mobbed in august, i miss the beautiful desolation (angelic, even) of the winter months, but it's paradise anyway. i wonder how much i'll have to weed my garden when i get back, after a month of dereliction...esp the polygonum and the stuff that comes up between the paving bricks on the walkways, oh and the garlic chives that take over everything...well i will have plenty of occupational therapy in the weeding mode when i get back, and i've got something already on the loom, plenty to do. xo for now! md

    kale does "good" in my garden..

    I steam it in my trust Sunbeam electric steamer... 8-12 mins..

    then a hefty dash of Vinegar, some pepper, some tamari sauce...

    I also steam Black Glutinous Thai Rice about the same "treat" as that Korean black sweet rice..

    cheers, Ed Baker

    thanks for the lovely suggestion. i don't have an electric steamer, but i can work around that...yes, i prefer balsamic, and the black glutinous rice sounds great, esp the word "glutinous" and the word "black" and the word "Thai" and the word...and the word...
