I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food! If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below. All you have to do is link back to this blog post from your blog. I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!
Summer eating, to me, is all about fresh vegetables. I love to be able to find what I want to have for lunch or dinner out in my garden, or from the farmers’ market. It is a joy to be able to eat something fresh. Perhaps I love food a little too much!
My peppers have been growing really well, so I frequently feature them in meals, typically salads. Yesterday, however, I was able to pick my first zucchini. If you have been reading my blog this summer at all, you will realize what a big deal that is. But, if you haven’t been reading, the short story is that all of my summer squash, winter squash, and cucumber plants were killed by squash bugs. I have one lone zucchini plant left, which I planted in a pot as a last resort. I would like to say that it is doing quite well, and I wish that I had planted more in pots!
Since I had this one zucchini, I decided to make a quick saute for lunch yesterday. Super simple, and most of it was from my back yard! Slice half an onion, 2 small green peppers, 1 zucchini, chop a few cloves of garlic. Saute in coconut oil (or evoo), add salt and pepper and a little red pepper flake if you like spice like I do, and then you are done. It was absolutely delicious, and I enjoyed every bite. The fact that the zucchini/peppers/garlic came from my yard? Awesome 🙂 If I had tomatoes on hand, I would have thrown those in the mix as well. You can also add crushed canned tomatoes and some basil and you have a very quick sauce to put over pasta, yum!
