I parboil greens and freeze them. I cook up dried beans, and stash them for later in the week. I've got a jar of lentils sprouting, and little zip-lock bags full of finely julienned broccoli stalks, radishes, turnips and green beans. I plan to start a jar of preserved lemons later this week. When I look around at the abundance in my kitchen, I feel productive, and very fortunate.

E: Making an icon for minniethemoocha?
Me: Yep. They say she's a low-down hoochie-coocha...
E: Yeah, but she has a heart as big as a whale.
Me: She should really see a cardiologist about that.

Happy Monday, tout le monde. The hated month of January is nearly at an end! (Unfortunately, it is second in loathsomeness only to February. But at least it's a short one.)
