leftovers or Breakfast skillet (ham/bacon, cubed potatoes, kale, onion, cheese, eggs) and pancakes

RAINBOW CHARD:  Don't waste those gorgeous stalks!  Slice them into bite site pieces and sauté.  Melt butter or oil in a saute pan at medium heat. Add the stalks. Stir slowly but constantly for two to three minutes or until the stalks are slightly browned. If desired, add salt, paprika, garlic or lemon juice for flavor, or other ingredients.  Mashed potatoes would go nicely as another side dish.
  • To Boil:  Should take about 3-5 minutes - just until tender.
  • To Steam:  About 2-3 minutes.
  • To Saute:  Heat a little olive oil over medium heat.  Add some minced garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for 30 seconds, then add the greens.  Saute until slightly wilted, then cover and cook until tender.  It won't take long!
