Leftover vegetable chow mein, kung pao shrimp, and orange chicken that I bought for last night's dinner.

I broiled a nice slab of swordfish (very simply, with just butter, lemon, & freshly-ground black pepper) & served it with a big heap of lovely fresh buttered fiddleheads.

Fiddleheads are the newly emerging, still tightly coiled, fronds of the Ostrich Fern, named for the fact that they resemble the top of a violin or fiddle. They're only available in the spring & have been showing up for the past month in farmers & small upscale organic markets, as well as some supermarkets (where I purchased mine yesterday).

I love them, especially since I love variety in my vegetables, & to me the fiddlehead fern epitomizes spring. Only the Ostrich fern variety is considered edible, & the taste is very mild with a slight earthiness.

Here's a link to an online company that sells them. When they run out of fresh ones, they sell them frozen as well.

Oh, they sound great. I haven't heard of them, I'll have a surf and see if we have them in UK.

I ended up fixing Baked Chicken, Candied Sweet Potatoes made with fresh Sweet Potatoes, homemade Sage Dressing and Sweetened Iced Tea.
