If the giant raisins from this weeks farmers market basket weren’t enough, we also got a huge bunch of chard. There was more than I knew what to do with so we decided to try a stir fry. I’ve never used chard in a stir fry before so I was a bit nervous. Turns out I had nothing to worry about it was so good even the kids had seconds and y visiting sister couldn’t get enough.
