poem, Poetry, winter

Cabin Fever

This small hut is closing in on me

anxious energy burning

within

the boring stale air

the household chores

contemplating the dirty bed sheets

that litter my floor

the broken record of weather, news

skipping, frozen in time

snowbound blues, all boxed in

not amused.

Over-consumption

stuffing my moods with

winter’s brew and howling winds

pacing this room, milking

the season, dry teats depleted

shriveled with fever

icy bones re-heating the leftovers

of last night’s abhorrent gloom

feeding my anticipation of

winter’s impending doom.

These beauties are the start of a great summer meal, Yellow Tomatoes!

Pretty little things, aren’t they?

Slice and dip into a seasoned breadcrumb, no egg needed here.

Stack ’em all up on a plate…

beauteous!

Get out your favorite cast iron skillet.

Carefully place into hot oil, I used Canola oil.

Turn over when golden.

Drain on paper bag, or paper towels.  I then sprinkled scallions all over them!

Ribbons of collard greens.

Cut the stems out of all the collard’s.

Roll them…

Chop into ribbons of collard’s!

Chill some bubbly, we chose Prosecco…and we didn’t have ice so we improvised!

It was another fabulous “Veggie only night” dinner.

 

I also prepared a cream herb potato side dish. I made it with a little yogurt, skim milk, cilantro and salt, it was out of this world zingy, tangy, and delish !

We loved this dish so much it will become a staple at our table!

Yum Food !! Yum Art!!
