Rain brings blessings!

It’s how you see it! Picasso did not paint people the way they really are. Because it’s how you see it!

Check out his works here which am grateful to have seen as a student in Madrid. You wouldn’t realize how lucky you were if you live across a block off  Museo de Arte Contemporanea de Reina Sofia! I remember I would hie off to this place to get away from the drudgery of school work (if there’s such a thing in Spain but there is) or after long Spanish lunches… (yes always!)

So we are delighted to hear news that salad greens are growing nicely especially romaine this weekend. A few weeks back I updated you that the sun scorched if not bolted the delicate leaves of arugula and romaine so this weekend we have romaine aplenty!

And our all time favourites – green leafy veg such as spinach, camote greens, native pechay, chinese kangkong, mustard greens, saluyot, alugbati, dahon ampalaya are starring this weekend…

Green and leafy veg are incredibly flexible and easy to do.  You can juice them or saute in garlic and olive oil and sprinkle sea salt.  It never fails.

And we’ve got plenty of spuds (yes potatoes) too, brown eggs, white chicken, avocados, calamansi, red and white onions, calabasa, string beans, tomatoes and different beef  cuts such as for stew, sukiyaki, tapa and patties !
