Whew! Glad it’s a little cooler today.
We’ve been enjoying frozen berries during the heat wave. (I don’t like fresh berries because of the gushy texture. But freezing removes the gushiness.) We had little bowls of strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries for dessert one night last week.
This weekend, we made yummy blueberry pancakes. The three grain pancake mix is really good! Better than plain old Bisquick. There’s still one pancake in the fridge that’s been calling my name all day today. Maybe I’ll have an afternoon snack later.
I broke down and bought some lettuce at Kroger. I wasn’t sure what else to do with carrots, radishes, and cucumber but make a salad! The salad was fine, but it was a good reminder of how much tastier fresh lettuce is.
Last night’s supper was tilapia with fines herbes, roasted purple potatoes, stir-fried squash, and sautéed French green beans. Everything turned out good this time.
The tilapia recipe was very easy: sprinkle fish with herbs, salt, and pepper. I dusted them with a little cornmeal mix, but most of it fell off. Then I sautéed them in a good bit of olive oil for two minutes a side. They finished before the vegetables but kept well in a 200 degree toaster oven. Butter melted on low with garlic, fines herbes, and lemon juice made a nice sauce.
My next stop is a stir-fry to use up some left over cabbage as well as some chard, radishes, and possibly the last squash.
And I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in tomorrow’s delivery!
