The days ooze by like oil. Viscosity alone moves me through the day. After months and months of intense farm management—trying to hold all the little details in my periphery, I’ve eased into a bit of tunnel vision. My long term and big picture visors have gone up and all I can see is the immediate task list. I just put one foot in front of the other and repeat. I just float along on the liquid days.
Turns out, there’s been a lot of liquid in these liquid days, which doesn’t inspire me to move more than my slow plodding pace. The seasons are going to change, the farmily will scatter, the heavy clothes will come out of their closet to wrap themselves around me…all regardless of me. I’m simply trickling along the oil slick of time.
This time of year brings us fresh baby ginger and lots of lush leafy greens like kale, which makes it a great time to make
Honey-Ginger Kale Salad
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 1/2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (10 ounce) bunches kale, stems removed, leaves thinly sliced
Whisk together vinegar, juice, soy sauce, honey, and ginger in a small bowl. Add oil slowly, whisking constantly until incorporated. Put kale in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing, and mix well. Using your hands, massage kale until softened, wilted, and reduced in volume by about half.
