This Thanksgiving, I’m making a salad with some unusual ingredients from my garden. Unusual to me, anyway, as I didn’t know you could eat the tops of radishes, carrots, and beets, as well as the leaves of Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and other cabbage-family plants. Heck, maybe everyone knows this, and I was the last to know . . . and now I’m posting about it like “hey, I just found out about this new-fangled picture box that you can watch little people act out stories on. It’s so cool; you have to check this ‘television’ thing out!”. I’m rather excited about the whole thing, to be sure, especially as this poor specimen of a Brussels plant doesn’t look likely to grow any sprouts. Ever.
But look at all those yummy leaves! It’s the small things, this year, for which I am thankful–the big things, too, like family, friends, all of you, but . . . well, you know, learning that I can eat radish leaves (and that they are actually yummy) is quite special to me.
Happy, thankful thoughts, prayers, and love to all of you this Thanksgiving (pick the one or ones you want :)).
