Food Chat a la Cat

Print Friendly and PDF
I normally do this blog on Monday.
 This week was extra busy, and I am actually starting a PAID Social Media job today...and have a bid on a website I should hear about I am trying to start this year with my 'must make money' priorities in order!
What that means for you, dear 'CathyEats' reader, is that on occasion, I will not always provide you with a recipe...just a little:

"Food Chat a la Cat!"

(I really had to think about how I was going to phrase that, as I did not want 'the words'cat'and 'food' near each other! HA!)
Now to the chat!

This lovely photo is courtesy of my once every 2 week SPUD box. It appears to be rainbow chard. I received 4 pieces: 2 white, 1 yellow,and 1 pink. The yellow and the pink colours are really quite extraordinary...colours like you infrequently see in nature...shockingly beautiful.
I never ate a leaf of chard before I started receiving my SPUD box. I did look up a few recipes, but I mostly just started to treat it as a leafy green vegetable that needs to be prepared in 2 parts: Tough stems chopped small, and sauteed or boiled (in soup) before the leafy parts are added, and then only cooked until wilted and bright green, not disintegrated and pale gray!
I sauteed this chard last night with some large yellow onions and a fat clove of garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. It was sweet and delicious, and made the leftover chicken I ate it with taste even better.

Make friends with more leafy greens, be healthy, and live longer!

Chatty Cat...OUT!


  1. Love Swiss Chard! Your recipe looks great. Try this one for a change of pace.
    It's one of my faves!

  2. Thanks for the comment, Shelley!
    Your recipe sounds incredible...I'll have to get some lamb...

  3. I haven't tried the lamb dish Cathy. Just the Swiss chard :) (though the lamb dish DOES sound good.

  4. Shelley,
    It does sound I'm sitting here with a lovely salad for lunch...when all I want is some yummy, delicious...LAMB!
    We should do lunch soon, Shelley!
    (somewhere that serves a nice LAMB...perhaps! HA!)
