Camping with Springdell burgers and red leaf lettuce for dinner and collard greens boiled and then sautéed in bacon fat made a satisfying side. 

imageDid I mention the beef short cut?  This is Framer Jamie’s favorite piece of beef, and now I can see why!  Just a quick sear on each side on your grill at high heat, and you are in for a tender and tasty treat!

Sarah made a stir fry with snap peas from her garden, bok choy, red peppers and Springdell beef.

This particular smoothie is a banana, kale, parsley, and agave nectar smoothie!
