Hi Richard Z,
I find Kale greens at Walmart or Market Basket.  They are good steamed with garlic.
I also bought mustard greens at Walmart, and they weren't the best looking, but cooked well. 
 
My husband planted a garden with broccoli and half-long carrots. 
Our broccoli plants turned out to be broccoli rabe in size, and taste pretty strong.  I guess I need a new recipe for them.   

I found the kale at Wal-Mart. Lovely flavor!

I am, aren't I! My secretaries are now expecting a soup a week! I'm in the kitchen now cooking Ronnie's Caldo Gallego. I made a few minor changes. I added Savoie's smoked sausage to the mix and increased the amount of potatoes. I substituted seasoning blend for onions and celery. I also went with chicken stock instead of water. It looks and smells good though!

I have just been looking at the cookbook, never try it before.
I have find the "Spanish Omelette" Contributed by "RedHotMama" I will be trying this weekend! As I live so close to Spain looks I should now how to make such a thing but never here of that way. Bacon, sweetcorn, milk... I'm still shocked!
Always make the spanich omelette or, Tortilla Española, or Tortilla de Patatas only with eggs, potatoes, some oil, onion and may be some pepper...
Really interesting!
Oh, what is:
frozen peas, blanched

looks my english is not so good...

For the blanched frozen peas, I think you just pour them from the packet into boiling water and leave them there for a few seconds, so that they are slightly thawed (but not cooked) before they go into the mixture.

Let us know how it turns out!

I said I would do a long time ago and its done!!!
Have to say that I was really pleased with the thing... Really nice mixture!!!
I do have to make dinner for some friends on friday and I think they will have a some of this as they whait to the "little pig" (I don't know how to say "cochinillo", sorry...). The omelette is great and we will have something to speak about while we eat!!! You know, "this is Spanish omelette", "no", "yes", "I had never had before"...
Thanks RedHotMama!!!

my mom has a fine touch of traditional mexican food desserts and dishes. When i say traditional i don't mean... "1 cup of..." cause that's not traditional on mexican families haha. I will try to but the ingredients though! Beautiful flavored cooking and most great for those that enjoy spicy foods :)

I did try one. It looks like the dish but the taste is not. Trial and error.
