This month I got a letter saying again that there is something wrong with my bennies. The first month of my quarter, I was given $170, as normal, but for some reason the other tow months I'm being awarded $67. Hey, I'll take it any way I can get it, but it is odd. I'm sure that was the reason for the letter. I'll have to contact my case worker.

But in the mean time, I'm enjoying the warmer wether and the flood of greens in the grocery. I've decided to throw some change to my normal fresh greens and I bought some kale. Some of my other veg friends have commented on the dense nutritional value of kale, so I thought I'd give it a go. What I love about the cabbage is the great almost mustard flavor. I like it raw to tell the truth, but I find myself including it in place of my normal spinach.

I've also been enjoying maters. I do miss picking my own fresh maters, but along with some yummy beans and corn, the acid from fresh maters makes a great rounded flavor to a meal.

I also whipped up another quiche. It was real good this go around and I polished it off in two days! I love cooking!
