The Colors of Swiss Chard

Don't these Swiss chard bunches look beautiful? It's not just the color that makes them pretty, but I loved how this farmer displayed them so perfectly at their stand at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco. This is the Marin Roots Farm stand. This weekend looks like we're going to have beautiful spring weather so get out and support your neighborhood farmers' market.

I went to mine on Sunday. Loved all the colors. Bought more flowers than anything else though. I've missed fresh flowers in the house. Did buy some asparagus, some strawberries (though they aren't very sweet) and some fresh eggs.

Love Swiss chard -- sauteed with garlic, olive oil, a drizzle of balsamic, and a handful of currants.

We did a turkey-barley-lentil soup with Swiss chard that was very hearty and tasty. Watch for the post later this week.
