MD has posted a delicious sounding recipe for ginger spinach. She said that she has also used the recipe with kale. I am eager to try it.
Yesterday I swam laps. Afterwards I stopped at the health food market. When I got home I only had 30 minutes to eat lunch and change clothes before leaving for school. I had cod left over from the night before in the refrigerator. Cold fish is ok with me. I also had turnip greens. Cold turnip greens aren't as good, but there was not time to warm them up.
As I dished up the turnip greens, I kept thinking about those ginger greens. On impulse, I put a spoon of ginger juice (no time to grate ginger, but I keep juice in the fridge all the time), a spoon of olive oil (no time to melt butter and saute), and a squirt of honey (no time to wait for raisins to plump up) on the cold greens. I stirred it together and tasted it. I thought I was eating dessert. It was delicious, even cold.
I am going to make the recipe the right way and serve it warm. I think even my husband, who doesn't usually care for cooked greens, will like it.
This verse was in my Bible study. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing Psalm 34:10. When I read that verse it makes me think of God as eager to bless us with good food and health if we will seek Him and trust Him to provide what we need for the way we are made.
