I’m afraid these collards sat in the refrigerator too long. They were so fresh and crisp when I bought them but now they’re wilted.

Yaaay, it’s Christmas and we got a new toaster from my mother. She noticed that we kept the old one working by jamming clothespins into the slot to hold down the lever (kind of a fire hazard). You get a lot of burned toast using this method.

We were at the Goodwill and found this Sunbeam bread maker that appeared to have never been used. I know people who love their bread makers so $13.00 later we had one of our own.

My friend Mike brought over some of the surplus produce from his CSA subscription. Leeks, parsnips, potatoes, carrots, parsley, etc. I used some of it in a winter vegetable chowder. These are the leeks and a few potatoes on the kitchen table.
