In the depths of winter, before spring gives any signs of hope, it’s nice to have a couple reminders of what’s to come. Here are a few greens to keep winter blues away.
When outside I’m surrounded by brick, stone, cement and iron, I like having a lot of green inside. Aloe and Jade are tough plants. Which is a necessity in this house. A boyfriend who never remembers to water plants + cats, usually = death. These guys have beat the odds.
Fresh herbs from our winter share. I experimented with this recipe for Guinness Stew and decided to try it in a slow cooker. Cooking the stew gave the house a really lovely fresh smell. While eating the stew gave us a really warm pub feel. Thank you Patricia for the great crock pot, thanks Paul and Anne for leaving some Guinness in our apartment, and thank you Mike for visiting and letting me try out new recipes on you
Finally, the Little Spinach that Could. And was very confused. I swear these guys were waiting for winter to start growing. They’ve stuck it out though. Been snowed on a couple times. But if little seedlings can make the most out of the cold weather, maybe I can too.
…..eh, nope. I want spring.
