Hi Deelie, I am amazed that people eat swiss chard with anything! Keep up the good work. You'll eventually get Americans to eat more healthily.

Here is a side note if you garden. This stuff grows so fast that you could have it everyday and you would never get it all gone. At least that is the case in Iowa. Sounds so good Deeli! I have a new recipe now to use up some of the chard for next summer.
