Let’s take a quick breeze through Jess’ kitchen for some honorable mentions of the week:

It’s not much to look at, but this kale sautéed with bacon, garlic scapes and lemon was pretty great.  I’ll share the recipe soon but in the meantime, it’s pretty straightforward and delicious!

image

I could not stop devouring this massaged kale salad with strawberry vinaigrette, dressed with extra berries, avocado, and sunflower kernels.  A post-worthy salad for sure!

image

Some of my greens (2 heads of lettuce and 1 bunch of collards) went to relatives as I was going beach camping again (and it’s pretty hard to convince the boys to eat collards when there are fresh fried clams around).  Some greens came on the trip though, namely the loose lettuces enjoyed in sandwiches on the commute to the cape and some fennel fronds for a VERY satisfying camping tea.  Mint would go great with this too!

Now, off to Sarah’s busy busy busy kitchen!

Well, this was one of my busiest weeks yet!  I have spent a huge amount of time getting ready to have my business, Whisk on Wheels, at the July 3rd country fair in Chelmsford.  You should all come visit me!

Here is a look at one of my offerings tomorrow, made with Springdell eggs!

Although I was cooking a lot, I’m afraid I didn’t take too many photos this week.  But here is one of many kale smoothies from this week.

I promise to be better taking photos next week, I won’t be baking for a large croud!  

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
