Oh, how does the garden grow

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/22/274203/ In addition to our CSA share from [Rolling Prairie][1] and our trips to the [Lawrence Farmers’ Market][2], my family always has another source of local produce in the spring and summer: our garden. I’ve mentioned before that I’d looked forward to having a garden since before buying our house. ...

One last curry, I promise

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/13/273475/ As you may have judged from my last post, I’m sort of obsessed with curry at the moment. Or for the entire seasons of fall, winter and spring. And it doesn’t seem to matter what type — Indian, Thai, a hybrid — I want it. Luckily, for my rut-loving ...

Fresh, light summer curry

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/07/272996/ All winter long, it seems, I made curry. Thai curry, to be exact. I wrote about a few of them in this space. They were hearty and often served over sweet potatoes for extra nutrition, because I’m a little weird like that. And I may be one of the ...

The case of the unloved asparagus

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/01/272744/ Sometime between last spring and this spring, my kiddo totally forgot that he loves asparagus. Last year, he’d eat the green or purple stalks, no questions asked. But this year? No, no, no, no, get that away from me, no. That’s a direct quote. I’m sure anyone with kids/grandkids/imagines ...

CSA season is upon us!

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/24/272389/ It’s nearly May, and you know what that means, don’t you? CSA time! For the past several years, I’ve been documenting how I use the CSA (community supported agriculture) box I get weekly through the spring, summer and fall from [Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance][1]. If you are new to ...

Healthy doughnuts, part 2

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/17/271993/ When [I last wrote about doughnuts][1], I told you I was really, really trying not to make doughnut making a “thing” for me. I’d had a doughnut pan literally for years and had avoided using it because I was sort of afraid of over-using it, if you know what ...

Healthy soft serve ice cream

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/09/271646/ Like many kids, my 5-year-old is very much into the PBS show “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” which, for those of you who don’t have kids, is a cartoon spin-off of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” As you can expect from a pedigree like that, “Daniel Tiger,” as the kiddo calls it, is ...

Strawberries sans shortcake

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/02/271349/ It’s not that often that I write about snacks on this blog, and I’m trying to make up for that this year, with a few more ideas on what to eat when you’re hungry but not eating a meal proper. Today’s particular snack is one I’ve been having after ...

The perfect pad thai

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/27/271105/ I’ve been a longtime lover of pad thai. A connoisseur, really. It’s one of my go-to treat foods after a marathon or ultramarathon. I’ve devoured it in probably every state I’ve ever visited. Honestly, if a restaurant has it on its menu, I’ll try it at least once, no ...

That's a wrap, winter

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/20/270746/ Sometimes, especially times like these when we are just starting a new season (hello, spring!), I end up taking an old favorite and changing it up a bit. You know, so it looks all fresh and shiny but pretty much tastes the same (because, as you know, I’m a ...
