Not the animal...the plant. :)

The lambsquarter is coming up thick around my farm this spring...

I gather the young tender plants...

I sort and wash them...

Gathered some wild onions...

Fried some of my pepper bacon..

Sauteed the wild onion in the bacon drippings and a bit of butter..

Added my lambsquarter and cooked til tender, then topped with the crispy bacon...

The lambsquarter with a hunka cured smoked pork...

Thanks for checking out my supper!

Good looking meal, Jeanie! I think the lambs quarter is what one of my employees calls wild spinach. I haven't tried it myself.

Thank you Pops, Mballi and JJRokkett! biggrin.gif
MBalli, they grow in several areas around my farm. I just use the young tender plants though. The older plants get bitter. Hope you try them sometime!

Fresh green and smoked meats= awesome.I have been sauteeing(spelling) spinach all week from garden with fresh garden greens in salads-eating like my garden rabbits until heat arrives.Thank you for excellent q-view on using natures bounty.

Thanks Alex! Your spinach sounds great too! Mine's not quite big enough to eat yet.

Here's a pic of the cured, smoked hunka pork..... from my back yard too. :)
