Just so you all don't think that the only thing we have been surviving on is sweets for the past couple of weeks I thought I would post a side dish we had for dinner the other night.
Not that someone wouldn't be able to survive on nothing but sweets it's not really recommended. I'm pretty sure it's frowned upon, in fact.
Connie's delivered on Monday and this beautiful rainbow chard was in the box. My first thought was to use it as a fan because it's awful hot here for March and it's shaped like a fan. My second thought was to google rainbow chard and find out what in the heck to do with it.
So, while fanning myself I googled. I came across this recipe that called for fresh basil. I planted fresh basil in the garden about a week ago - check.
Pine nuts were sitting in the pantry - check.
We were good to go. Let's get this rainbow chard party started, yo!
