“Smell this and tell me if it’s good,” Citygirlfriend said, holding an old bag of hamburger.
When I met Citygirlfriend, she didn’t really eat or touch meat. On our first date, I served her a single hamburger, with Goosefoot Greens, (Chenopodium album), on the side.
I guess she figured, ‘When in Rome,’ because she tried to eat it. She’s been game ever since, and usually cooks meat or eggs for every meal. I love it.
Melissa is a vegetarian, which is ok. What I’m really enthused about is how she’s taken to foraging for wild food. She has developed a recipe with Stinging Nettle leaves and Quinoa. Quinoa is a member of the Chenopodium genus, and a relative of Goosefoot Greens.
Hamburger and Chenopodium, who would a thunk it?
