Efforts

Kohl rabi

Sometimes you make the effort to accomplish something and it works out.  Other times not so much.  The outcome generally has little to do with the amount of effort.

Sigh.  This week I have had some good outcomes and others, not so much.

In the not so much category, there is tonight’s dinner.  All fresh vegetables from the garden and healthy fish…but the combo…uh uh.

We returned from the lake for a day and I harvested broccoli and kohlrabi from the garden.  I found a recipe for roasted kohlrabi that sounded good…had never had cooked kohlrabi unless a small component of a stirfry…but worth a shot.

Bottom line, roasted kohlrabi is okay but DO NOT serve it with fish.  Bad combination.

Last night, we stayed in the truck camper as a second trial to see how improvements were functioning.  I put together a vegetable lasagna, winging the recipe.  I used fresh tomato sauce from the garden and kale freshly picked.  The lasagna was great.  No more or less work than today’s meal.

I have continued to work on the gift portrait this week.  Here is where you last saw it…

And here it is today…

Still many more layers in all areas to go.  I am making the effort…what will the result be?
