In search of healthy and fun meals to feed my family, with an eye toward sustainable living.

Here you'll find recipes & ramblings about keeping my family fed with what's available in Alaska between local produce, a little bit of wild harvest, and the modern grocery store.

Green dinner

Don't you just LOVE all the fresh green produce in summer? Between the garden and the farmer's market, we've been eating rather GREEN!

Somehow, I did not appreciate veggies when I was young (Fancy that -- bet you've never heard of kids like that!) .
Tonight, right before dinner, Youngest reminded me why with her questions when the kids were helping prepare green beans to go with the rather green meal of Potatoes with German "Frankfurter Gruene Sosse" (see post for recipes of this delicious green sauce made of blended herbs and greens).

"Mommy, you're not going to cook those green beans like the lunch lady does at school? They're like, really bendy!"

Involve the kids in as much of the food prep as they're willing, and, for goodness sake, don't overcook the veggies!

  1. They probably serve canned green beans at the cafeteria don't you think? Your blog is looking great - makes me want to eat!
