Totally Diggin' the Veggies

Today I took a vacation day, because I knew I would need some unwinding time. We got in late Saturday, we drove a lot Sunday, and I just knew I wouldn't be ready to face work today. So I woke up early (around 4am, thankyouverymuch), put away 4 loads of laundry, played with the new kitty (more on that later), and went to the grocery store. We had missed the last two weeks of the farm, but we still had plenty that hadn't gone bad in the fridge. So I did a massive cook-fest of the veggies...

And here we have, pre-cooking...Swiss chard au gratin

Kohlrabi stuffed with free-range beef and onions (I'm not sure whether or not the onions are free range...I don't care, really, because I don't think they need that much space...) - as another non-vegetarian move, these will be topped with slices of bacon before going in the oven. I had more stuffing than kohlrabi, so I made some stuffed peppers, too.

Stuffed swiss chard - totally veggie - filled with basmati rice, cheeses, onion, spices, pecans...lots of goodness.

I could get used to just cooking all day. Kind of.

In another non-vegetarian move, Beth will replace the kolrabi with pork bellies, and the peppers with shank steak. ;)

Pam, ew!!! haha.

Beth, FEED ME. I am so hungry now! Are the two swiss chard recipes find-able online?
