Here’s what came early this month. It’s kind of cool to think back about what we actually did with food rather than my hopes and dreams on a Wednesday afternoon.
I’ve still some of these apples in the fridge. My hope and dream is to make horse cookies with them for my horse friends at Pony Tail Acres. I may end up peeling, slicing, and drying rings in the oven instead.
Patty-pan squash is a wonderful squash. Think yellow squash with almost no gushiness. We had two rounds of delicious stir-fried squash with these puppies plus local garlic, butter, and cornmeal. Three cheers for patty-pan squash.
The kale became kale with raisins and pine nuts – one of our favorite late suppers. I roasted the beets and then served them sliced as a veggie side – often accompanied by an ear of corn.
I’m racking my head for what we did with these potatoes. I may have grated them with the dream of making potato pancakes. They then turned into a delicious reality of hashbrowns after I couldn’t manage to get the cakes flipped right. The tomatoes became delicious bruschetta topping. And the field peas rocked our world.
I used the cornmeal for stir-fried squash and eggplant Parmesan. But I’m also getting a hankering for corn bread. Mmmm… corn bread.
From the store, I ordered…
I’ve still got some of these beets in a bag in my crisper. They seem to be holding on pretty well.
And here’s a pic of the kind of meals we’ve been grooving on this summer. Hooray for local summer veggies!
Enjoy your food!
