Lady Kale
A Note from the Farmer's Wife
In response to last week's blog post, which featured a recipe for the Patti LaBelle pie, I received this email from a CSA member: "I just wanted to let you know that I share my vegetables with Patti and she is using your sweet potatoes and vegetables for her Thanksgiving. She says you have the best Kale and Okra! We are both very sad to wait until the season starts again."
"Wait a second," I replied, "Do you mean THE Patti LaBelle??!! The Patti LaBelle who crooned me through college? The On-My-Own-Lady-Marmalade-Your-Are-My-Friend-Patti? Are you seriously telling me the Queen of Rock and Soul eats OUR vegetables?!"
Turns out that the answer is yes! In case you didn't know, Ms. Patti loves to cook. By now you probably heard about her famous Sweet Potato Pie, a sold out phenomenon available at a certain massive box store. To learn more, I checked out her website and found an array of sauces and recipes right out of her kitchen. Check out this recipe for Lemon Turkey.
As the Farmer and I sat at our Thanksgiving table, loaded with brussels sprouts, parsnips, carrots, celeriac, baby salad, mashed potatoes and a beautiful turkey raised by Broad Wing Farm, we took a moment to picture all of our loyal veggie fans doing the same. We thought about how wonderful it is to be connected to everyone through the ground, and pictured many happy faces eating sprouts and spuds. What an honor that one of those happy faces belongs to Ms. Patti LaBelle. Now all we want to know is did she make one of her famous sweet potato pies with a Red Earth monster spud?
