    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! [​IMG]
    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.
