Thankfully our generous friend lets us pick nettle at her house. Ours is nowhere to be seen and, I'm guessing, still shivering under the ground waiting until the earth warms and it is safe to come up. We've been having lots of smoothies with nettle.
Green eggs(nettle) and pan-fried thyme/garlic potatoes.
This morning W reminded me that I didn't need to put nettle in EVERYTHING. I am all astonishment. ;-) Why wouldn't one want to put nettle in everything? And so, he ate plain old pea soup for lunch...whilst I had a delightful springtime broth with nettle, potato, onion,garlic and just a touch of red pepper flakes and Bragg's.
Just he better wait until our next pizza night! Nettle goes so well in pizza.
