No, bitter greens are not a political affiliation…

Ironically my garden excels at growing bitter greens. So, what do you do when life gives you bitter greens?  Send them back!?!  HELL no. Make a soup? Indeed, the irony of bitter greens mastery pales in comparison to all the lovely possibilities of awkward food selfies. So, here we go. Bitter greens are ready for their closeup.

Add some roast Kabocha squash,

a mirepoix,

some English peas,

vegetable stock, water…DAMN!  I’m hungry!  Let’s eat soup!!!

And don’t forget a nice sourdough…for dipping.

Grilled and good to go, add a nice red wine and we’re ready for our closeup!

Roots Run Deep winery (Educated Guess) has been so kind as to produce a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon for a remarkably affordable price of around $20.  Yes, you can enjoy wine without busting your budget!  Paired with these succulent sirloins to create a taste and memory that will not fade.  These steaks fed my oldest son and his good buddy, home from school for Spring Break.  Full and happy, ready to take on the coming spring time ritual of a break from studies and a head of new beginnings the young men take their leave.  All this and I forgot to photograph desert!  Next time, in an awkward way.
