a Stubborn Wish and a Bowl of Goodness

I’ve been battling dandelions. Last summer it seemed so fun to have a yard full of wishes.

We raced each other to them, spreading them to the sky with laughter while warm sun held us.

This year our yard is so full of wishes from those carelessly blown seeds that they are taking over everything.

I have fought and fought and dug and pulled and finally realized there must be some middle ground. I must let the wishes stay. So I pulled them out of deeply loved flower beds and pruned them back from newly planted wants, and then I told them they can have the rest. When I woke up this morning, in our last wheelbarrow from the battle, one wish stood tall. I believe it’s saying, thank you.

I sautéed red onions and yellow peppers until almost soft, added shredded cabbage and kale and cooked until desired doneness. Topped with chickpeas and kimchi.

Eat well. Stay safe.

  3. Growing up in Vermont, we had dandelion greens, tea and wine. Sauteed dandelion greens were what old-school Vermonters had for spring meals. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/how-to-make-dandelion-wine-and-eat-the-greens/Content?oid=2597433 is an example of how-to.

    embrace the wishes. 🙂
