Fresh lessons


Lunch? Or a lesson plan? Why not
both? Parts of a plant, deliciously demonstrated…


Roots- rainbow carrots, carrot-shaped radishes, and garlic. Stems- celery and broccoli stalks. Leaves-romaine lettuce and radish tops. Fruits- lemon, bell pepper, cucumber, avocado, tomato, snap peas… and olive oil!  And seeds? Chickpeas and tahini (sesame butter). I wish science were always so simple.

Busy busy around here… I’m teaching again this summer with the Greencorps youth program. I get to work with two groups of fifteen teenagers every day, and over the next six weeks we’ll be putting together bikes, learning to ride safely in traffic, about horticulture and urban ag and forestry, and also nutrition and sustainability. Whew!

Needless to say, I’ll be busy! Supper club is on hold for June… hopefully I’ll be able to fit one in around the end of July. I’ve got lots of menu ideas working … can’t wait to cook for my folks again soon.  We’re going to South America, Mexico, and then working our way up the Gulf Coast… hang in there y’all!
