Chickweed Salad

(click image to enlarge, look closely you'll see the flower)

Chickweed Salad 
Over Thanksgiving it was pointed out that I have tons of chickweed (an edible leaf) growing all over the new property. Today I made a salad and threw a bunch in for fun. Free food - who doesn't love that idea? 
Give it a good rinse and there you go. 

Ingredients: 
  • red leaf lettuce 
  • chickweed
  • avocado 
  • cilantro
  • onion
  • green pepper
  • sunflower seeds
  • shiitake sesame dressing :)
I've learned there are medicinal benefits to eating this common weed. It tastes a bit like corn but I also felt some kick as in a peppery flavor. Well last month Fox News showed a clip from Central Park NYC. with Steve Brill on foraging, and yes chickweed was a part of the many natural plants they found. 

Here's the link to watch:

 Let me know if you find some outside your door. Don't be afraid to try some. ;)

  4. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites
    for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  7. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
    I'm completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start
    a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand
    new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  8. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog
    in the near future but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
