The Wild Mustard Calls to Thee


"I ate a flower and two tiny leaves," said the husband. "They were hot!"

That's what happens when your ride your bicycle down a country road on a beautiful day. You just gotta stop, get off, and taste the wild mustard.

Take 25 is participating in ABC Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Mrs. Nesbitt and her friends. Today is the letter M. To check out other M posts, please click here.

  8. Wild mustard greens have been part of our salads lately. A welcome bit of tang!

    Hollister (the real one) brings wonderful memories of my childhood when it was a stop on the route to one of favorite weekend destinations.

    One of the things that I remember, that has probably not been in existence for 70 odd years, was a little stand that sold the best hamburgers I have ever eaten. They cost (gasp!) 5 cents each, a small price even then, and our family usually bought a bag of them. The buns were small compared to current standards.

    Roger, that takes my breath away, too.

    Mar, it smells heavenly, too.

    Working at home: I was tempted to harvest some but didn't have the time to go ask for permission.

    Joy, my favorite of way of fixing is sauteing it in garlic and a bit soy sauce.

    chuskulit, thank you.

    Joy, wow, 2 Joys today. I love it.

    Starnitesky, one of my favorite things about this time of year.
