And look at this. I don't think I need any new bandanas for outdoor work and camping this year. Ha! They are all washed and ready for the season.
Breakfast - collard frittata. The kids can simply re-heat quickly before school, so they can get more greens.
Dinner - crock pot of chili, buttermilk cornbread, and jalapeno butter. Normally, this butter would be great on a steak, but we topped our cornbread with it. I used frozen slices of jalapeno (with seeds), garlic and bit of olive oil. I did not have any cilantro on hand (dried or fresh).
I could not wait any longer for a nice big salad. I went to the grocery store and bought all organic ingredients, and topped it with home grown green onions.
I think my problem with my fingernails is not lack of protein, but lack of folic acid. Growing up I did not eat greens or salads. As an adult, I do, but not nearly enough. Now that I have added more greens to my diet (some times twice a day), my nails feel stronger. I'll know if that's the case after the next 5 months. It's been a month now. We do eat lots broccoli and asparagus, but not enough beets. I'm opening a jar of beets today. Mmmm!
