(weeping) "I don't like this!"
"But you haven't even tried it!"
"I don't like this food! It's YUCKY!"
I don't know what my kids' problem is. Doesn't this look delicious to you?
I'm being sarcastic. I know it looks gross; that's why I had to take a picture. It's not as nasty as it looks, I promise. But then again, I love chard.
When David got home, he asked if there was any dinner left; he thought this was compost. If you want to make nasty dinners too, here's what you do:
Go to Trader Joe's and get a bag of tortellini , a bag of frozen, cooked shrimp, and a bag of Chard of Many Colors, and follow directions. This involves sauteed garlic, chard, broth, a big can of crushed tomatoes, and a glug or two of Vermouth (you know, glug-glug....that's the sound it makes when you pour it into your throat--err...your pan...) and let it simmer. Throw the shrimp in the hot pasta water just before you drain it, toss everything togeter and voila! A big huge bowl of deliciousness that you will be enjoying, by yourself, for the rest of the week.
