home grown and home sewn
While visiting Hannah at Earlham last spring, I bought this vivid pink dish towel at a Goodwill store (the camera hasn't captured exactly the right shade). Using scraps from the chard quilt (see below), I appliqued a few patches to the towel. Presto! A cheerful and fall-ish splash of color for our kitchen. For cheap. CHARD, growing at "a bit of earth".
Chard is wicked good for you.
Have you tried chard and feta pie from
Your Organic Kitchen by Jesse Ziff Cool?
(page 224) it's yummy!
Or lentil soup with cumin, cilantro and chard from
Vegetable Soups by Deborah Madison?
(page 79) quick and easy!
Do you have a chard recipe you'd like to share? Here's the CHARD lap quilt. Done.
