Last of the greens

Well, it happened. We knew it would, it happens every year. The meal that features the last of our own greens. It happened one morning, the week before Thanksgiving. It was a lovely meal of eggs, sausage, greens and toast. It looked like this:

Don’t worry. Eric didn’t stab himself in the index finger. It’s a chronic milking injury. Back to the greens. They were delicious. We steam a few with the eggs as they finish. But the best way is to put a bunch on your plate with the eggs on top. Mmmmm. Greens for breakfast? Yes. I highly recommend trying it. It just makes you feel good from the start. With this meal, I’m pretty sure we didn’t eat the sausage. I think it ended up going into a stew we had over the next few nights.

Even Milo loves having greens for breakfast:

Look, he’s giving the greens a warm hello!

We are fortunate to have the greenhouse. More greens have been planted, sprouted and covered due to this weather. We are anxious to see how they do, and have our own greens before spring. Of course you all may be the recipients of some of these greens as well!

Do any of you eat greens for breakfast on a regular basis? What’s your favorite?

More soon!

    Eve, so funny that you mentioned that not being a knife injury on Eric’s finger….I really had that thought right before reading that sentence!

    Milo got a haircut!!! I’m probably out of the loop, but I didn’t know and he looks SO cut. I just love that little boy and can’t wait to see him (and you) next week.

    Yes, I eat spinach for breakfast often. Love it under eggs or with a scoop of cottage cheese and a hard boiled egg. Or a green smoothie. Wish I could step into my greenhouse for some šŸ™‚

    Meant to say Milo is cute up above… For some reason I can’t correct w/o erasing everything.

    I wish we had some greens to bring to your house! We will bring some eggs. Yes! Milo got a hair cut in October. It was a sad day. He doesn’t look like a baby anymore!

    We can’t wait to see you and the kids!
