Heather’s Whole Food Kitchen workshop kicked off a little over a week ago and I have been enjoying it immensely! We were all flat-out sick last week, so it took me a while to start trying the recipes, but every one so far has been a winner.

Last night it was whole food comfort food- Potato, Kale and Portobellos. It doesn’t photograph well, by my oh my, it was delicious. It was so flavorful ,seasoned with soy sauce and chili sauce. I just served some scrambled eggs along side for everyone else, and the kids all ate it (yay!).  We have also had a Chicken and Spinach stirfry that was delish, and on the menu tomorrow is Bean, Kale and Sausage Soup.

The recipes have worked out really well with the veggies that come in our CSA box. I do so love making sure that I use up wonderful organic vegetables that we get each week. Some weeks work out better than others, though. Look at what I got today in the CSA box:

It is called Romanesco cauliflower. Isn’t it awesome? And how lucky am I to live in southern California and have delicious, locally grown strawberries in February?

It is the ultimate Valentine’s Day present for my family- strawberries for dessert. Of course, there will be chocolate too.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
