I love FOOD and I love cooking.
The summer makes it so easy to access and use fresh fruits and veggies in my daily recipes.
Here are some of our fresh food snapshots.
Our first CSA box of the summer season. Summer squash, green bell peppers, corn, cabbage (red and green), tomatoes, potatoes, onion.
A bowl of lemons and limes to make fresh squeezed lemon/limeade and some lemon/lime dessert bars (recipe to come).
Purple potatoes which I chopped and combined in a casserole dish with olive oil, fresh thyme, basil, sage, oregano, parsley, 2 cloves of minced garlic a pinch of salt and pepper. I baked on 350 degrees for about 25 minutes and they were so good. Even the boys enjoyed them!
What fresh produce to do enjoy during the summer? Are you looking forward to anything in the fall?
I am starting my fall seeds now and hope to plant next week.
