Swiss chard cleaned and ready to go.
...and other colors, too.
Zucchini flowers anyone?
A visit to a good friend resulted in bagfuls of fresh goodies from her garden. We feasted like kings for days.
A hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs, fried zucchini strips, sauteed swiss chard, and battered zucchini flowers. (OK, I know there's a lot of fried in there, but they're VEGETABLES. Come on.)
Summer salad #1 with garden fresh lettuce, chunks of pear, and chicken grilled with a homemade plum sauce (gift of a friend).
Summer salad #2 with same lettuce and plum chicken, plus fresh raspberries and snap peas.
I dream of having a garden that could feed me for the summer. It appeals to so many aspects of my character: love of fresh food, anything earthy, and... I'm cheap.
Everything is so fresh in the summer! Enjoy the good eats of the season :)
