ZOMG, CHARD!!!
I'm getting ready for our movie night (tonight at 8!  Come over!)  But just had to pop in here with a word about CHARD.

I have been so intimidated by this stuff in the past.  A friend told me that I could just make it up the way I make my spinach and garlic sautee' that I love so much... slice up fresh garlic, heat olive oil in your biggest skillet (I have a huge one I bought just for this stuff) and as soon as the color starts to change, toss in the greens - washed, but not dried.  Add some salt and cracked black pepper, and the result is a simple braise - we added teh veggie snausages for extra flavor and protein.  Delicious!  And ZOMG good for you.  :-)

I is a happy bunneh!

(Come to movie night!)

Me <3 chard, even more than spinach. Did you chop up and use the whole stem? Cuz you can! And if you steam it instead of saute, red chard will retain its color, so you can use the jewel-like translucent stems for prettying up other dishes. We are using the stem to bring a little visual zing to a delicious but otherwise monochromatically boring onion tart.

Ooh also try this. Chard + rice = CRAZY DELICIOUS!
