In lieu of a real post, I’m going to toss out a couple of mumbles.
1. When the greens come on this hot and heavy, it leaves me with no choice but to throw them in a big pot and boil them down in a bit of broth, water, and leftover bacon drippings. Nothing gourmet. Nothing savory. Do they taste great? No. Do they taste bad? No. Then eat them.
2. We are trying a dairy reintroduction with homemade fully fermented raw milk yogurt. Except, like the greens, I boil mine. The milk that is. No raw milk ingestion in this house. The older kids seem to be doing well with the yogurt, but I kid you not, the youngest gets bloody noses when she eats dairy. She also chooses, for some reason, to not eat the yogurt anymore. Self-selection I presume.
I failed my dairy re-trial. I ate it for three days, and I had a throbbing head for three days that wouldn’t think like I wanted it to and some minor diarrhea (which I always celebrate). After the headache went away, I tried it again with just a spoonful. Today I have a headful of pressure, call it a headache if you want, that just doesn’t want to think like I want it to.
So a mumbling Monday.
Do you tolerate dairy? How do you know, either way?
Do you have a favorite greens recipe? I have collards, kale, and chard coming on like crazy.
