I can eat a rainbow . . .

Remember the song, "I Can Sing a Rainbow"? Well, I not only can sing one, I can eat one! The bunch of fresh chard from the local farmers' market was so huge I decided to cook it in two batches. Dinner I--greens only. Dinner II--stalks only.
When I cut up the stalks to put into the steamer, I was struck by how utterly beautiful this vegetable is and snapped a picture with my phone. You'll have to agree, this was visually one spectacular veggie (tasting sweet and fresh, too, with just a dash of salt and pepper).

P.S. If you want to listen to "I Can Sing a Rainbow," click your mouse here and enjoy.

Hi Sallie, My name is David Engel and my wife Peg and I are going on the cruise next week with you. I'm checking to see if you and Jay might be interested in joining us on a tour to Seville when we are in the Cadiz port. The cruise line isn't offering one so I've found a highly recommended private company that will do it. Please drop me an email and we can discuss further. dengel5@roadrunner.com
