These are the ones DH is getting ready for me to use next. Gorgeous aren't they?
I just had to use some more of those fabulous onions. When the temps are 118, the oven or even BBQing is just too hot. So the crock pot is the best. A fabulous hearty roast with no effort at all. Potatoes, onions and carrots.
Aren't these beautiful. Everyday we've had at least two bowls full like this. They're so sweet, I love to eat them just like grapes.
Besides tossed salads, I love them in pasta salads too. You can find this Chicken Salad recipe here.
Sometimes a plant hides behind the leaves and you miss it, such as this absolutely huge Zucchini. Now if you are going to roll in a cornmeal/flour egg wash mixture and fry, it will be fine, but sometimes when they are this big they tast a little pithy, or bitter. However they are perfect for baking.
How about some Zucchini Bread. This is a fabulous recipe and makes two loaves. Perfect for now and one to freeze for later.
Doesn't this look yummy. Just letting it cool then I will add a powdered sugar glaze to the top. Wrap it well and put one in the freezer for later.
Since I had the oven going and I was in the mixing mood, I also had some over-ripe bananas, so how about a loaf of Banana Bread too. This is the most moist Banana Bread you will ever eat, it has sour cream as the secret ingredient. Love it.
Doesn't this make your mouth water too. I think I will glaze this one also, and put it in the freezer for later too.
All three glazed with a little mixture of milk and powdered sugar. I poke a few small holes so some of the glaze runs inside for extra yumminess.
Here they are, tucked away in the freezer in the laundry room. Now when I need something sweet or a hostess gift, I can just wrap one of these in a pretty cloth and basket and I am ready to go.
I LOVE watermelon and I have eaten as much as we can grow. We just brought this one in and it is so sweet and so good. I just cut it in cubes and enjoy.
I love having the garden and love being able to cook from it. How about you, do you have a garden?
