What is this invasive plant? A: Flowering rush is a non-native, invasive species that grows along lake and river shores as an emergent plant. Flowering rush may also grow as a non-flowering, submersed plant with limp, ribbon-like leaves. Flowering rush was first reported in Minnesota in 1968 and is now known to be present in 21 lakes and two rivers in Minnesota. Most recently, flowering rush was discovered in Lake Minnetonka. Like other invasive aquatic plants, where flowering rush becomes abundant it can interfere with use of lakes and displace native plants. The Department of Natural Resources&apos; Invasive Species Program mon- itors the distribution of flowering rush, works to prevent further spread, and supports management of the problems caused by the plant. Chip Welling - coordinator, Aquatic Invasive Species Management, Division of Ecological Resources, Minnesota DNR Mr. Potato Head New tricks with old ....... favorites It is commonly said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Being an old dog, Mr. Potato Head is painfully aware of this. Some- times, however, it is possible to come up with a few new tricks when it comes to cooking vegeta- bles. I'm thinking about two old favorites: cauliflower and string beans. Both are currently being harvested from gardens and avail- able at farmer's markets and stores. The traditional way to cook them is to boil them, hopefully not too long. Overcooked vegeta- bles lose some of their flavor, color and texture. Boiling veggies works fine most of the time. A microwave oven is also a quick and easy way to cook most vegetables. How- ever, there are ways to cook cauli- flower and green beans that add more flavor.The firstinvolvescauli- flower and cooking it in the oven. This method is very easy and very tasty, the cauliflower will get slightly browned and have a won- derful flavor. Baked cauliflower Ingredients 1 head of cauliflower, divided into florets 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower and seasoning. Drizzle on the oil and toss again. Transfer the mixture to a small nonstick baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes, tossing as needed, or until lightly browned and crisp tender. Serve immediately. This next recipe has a few more steps and is cooked on top of the stove. Again, I think you will find it to be pretty easy and very tasty. You could use yellow beans instead of green if that is what you have. Braised green beans Ingredients 1 pound of flesh green beans, trimmed 2 slices of bacon 1/2 onion, minced 1/2 cup boiling water 1 teaspoon lemon juice Salt and pepper to taste Directions Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet until crisp Remove the bacon with a slot- ted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate Return the skil- let with the reserved bacon grease to the stove. News of our students Jason Tenney of Kimball is among those who have been named to the Anoka-Ramsey Com- mtmity College dean's list for Spring Semester 2009 by earning at least a 3.5 (B+) grade-point average while carrying 12 or more credits. Army Private Amanda Zalesld graduates ]tfly 31 from "Boot Camp" at Fort Jackson, S.C. She is returning to Kimball to complete her senior year at KAHS. Cook the onion in the bacon drippings until soft, 5 to 7 min- utes. Stir in the green beans; cook another 2 minutes. Pour the boiling water into the skillet and cover the skillet imme- diately Steam for about 15 minutes Shake the skillet occasionally to keep the beans from sticking Add the butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper Cook and stir until the butter is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cooked bacon over the beans to serve. This is how we cook veggies at my house all of the time, except we only use bacon on special occa- sions. We usually start by cooking the onion in a little olive oil. When it comes to healthy cooking, bacon and butter are not your friends. Sure they taste great, but olive oil is a much healthier alternative. Enjoy all of the flesh veggies now while they are in their prime. When the winter winds start blowing all we will be left with is fond memories of how great they tasted!
