When Life Gives You Kohlrabi
Sorry, I loved Paul Rudd's character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I'm so easily amused.
When life gives you kohlrabi, get out the parmesan cheese!
So, you know how ingredient lists aren't copyright-able. This was a cookbook recipe, but I read the amounts incorrectly. So now it's my recipe (especially since I revised the directions). You may want to use less parmesan. Like a third less. But I wouldn't. I didn't.
2 T butter
3/4 c parmesan cheese
Grate the kohlrabi coarsely. Grate the parmesan finely. Heat the butter over medium heat. Cook the grated kohlrabi in the butter for about 8 minutes. Sprinkle on the cheese, cooking until it melts. Season with salt and pepper. This is what it will look like.
Especially when you eat crap all day.)
Today is the dude's 40th birthday. Because of his craptastic summer schedule (he is busy busy busy at work), we won't be taking his 40th birthday trip until October. Tonight we were going to have veggie curry, but I bought some grass fed filets at the farmer's market and I think we can roast some potatoes and steam some sugar snap peas for a delightful evening repast. You'll forgive me if I spend my time paying attention to him tonight.
