Return of the Omnivore

I made this delicious recipe on Wednesday night.
porkchop

It called for leeks, and it just so happens we have a bunch of leeks we never harvested from our garden. Mostly because they are pretty lame leeks, the largest having a one inch diameter, most only hovering around half an inch. I was determined to use at least a few before the frost got to them and this yummy pork chop recipe allowed me to do that. So I went outside, grabbed four, shook off the dirt and game inside. After their initial rinse I put them on the cutting board to cut off the long tails and roots.

Then this happened

Sam reigns supreme as Omnivore of the Week!

The leeks were only on the cutting board for 20 seconds before he decided to nibble at the greenery. He hasn't seemed very interested in any of the winter squash we've been hoarding from our last CSA. Probably because they aren't feathery and delicious the way kale, corn and leeks are.

And just for the sake of it, here are some leaves covered in yesterday morning's frost. It's just a matter of time before they are covered in a different cold white substance. Ugh.
