Happy Father's Day, everyone!
For Father's Day in our household, I gave my hub the best gift of all: the opportunity to grill a delicious meal for me. ;)
It was lovely out, so we spent some time in the garden today doing some bigger projects, and at the end of the day we took home a hefty harvest for our dinner. As we were leaving, Meredith told us "I don't think you harvested enough food!" And we were all like:
For dinner, we started with a lovely appetizer of fresh radishes (from the garden!) chopped up with some French gray salt, part of a salt kit that was a gift from my sis for Christmas. Thanks, Jen!
Moving on, we had a lovely salad of spinach, lettuce, purslane, and basil (all from the garden!) with a homemade salad dressing. Simple but refreshingly delicious.
For the main course, we had grilled kale. This is basically like kale-on-the-cob, and is the easiest and most delicious way to eat kale. Simply rub with olive oil, grill, then sprinkle with salt. Enjoy outdoors because it is extremely messy. Also, best to have some floss on hand.
The rest of the main course was potatoes and brats on the grill, both purchased. But we had a fun conversation about how we are currently growing potatoes (post coming soon!), and the mustard for our brats was homemade, so really, if we could just make our own brats... the meal would have been completely from us! How cool is that?
Just to set the record straight, the hub did actually get a real Father's Day gift: a set of AWESOME rooftop-friendly bowls that are colored like the planets. Here is Saturn:
And a fun fact: apparently the beast loves kale. We have a hippie dog! What a happy coincidence!
