It's May 12 and it's SNOWING in Evergreen

Let's see, the first day of Spring was uh,.....March 21? Well maybe in some parts of the country....but here in Evergreen, we've got snow in the middle of May! WOOT!

As I promised last week, I will continue to document snow days until I capture the last one of the season. (I've been told that it once snowed on the 4th of July).

For your viewing pleasure....here's what I woke up to this morning.







Update: It's now 6pm, guess what? It's snowing cats and dogs!

Gracious! It's beautiful there, but I am afraid my backside would grow larger with each passing month as I drank my weight in hot chocolate. I mean you can't enjoy snow days properly without HC can you ... even if it's falling in the middle of May.

Thanks for showing us what it looks like in your world. The sun is warm and bright in my little village Cornwall right now ... it may rain later as it frequently does, but it's light and bright for now.

Yes!

I think I've seen snow 10 times in the 24 years I've lived where I live, and only in the last 2 did it look anything like this. In the UK< in general the country grinds to a halt if more than half an inch falls, no equipement to cope with it. This year we had it for weeks, and the chorus of, "I blame the government," was comical.

Coco must be sooooo confused, though!

Oh, my!

Highs will reach in the lower 90s today. I can't feature it: snow in May!

That is absolutely beautiful. Sorry, I've never seen real snow and I imagine I would find the real thing too cold but I loved looking at these pictures.

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Ingredients:
1 bunch of collard greens, touch center stems removes, leaves torn into large pieces
1 14 oz can of Nort…

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
