on the menu


I felt a little sad this week buying my first local peaches of the summer. They're my favorite summertime fruit, but remind me that we're in August with both feet.

This pasta dish is outstanding - light and surprisingly filling (via Shari).


We've been eating greens from the garden for weeks now; our first few sungold tomatoes are just about ripe. And fruit is showing up in everything around here.



This version of fruit salad
is incredible. (Greek yogurt/limoncello/lemon curd.)


What's on your menu this week?

Trying to be sad with you but it is not working. I need to go get something delicious. Not that I am a fair weather friend but show me those photos and it is like a Pavlovian response...

plain yogurt (a few drops of vanilla mixed in) and fruit and granola, making it a perfect parfait!

I know exactly how you feel about peaches. I feel the same way. I predict this week there will be oodles of them at the farmer's market. This week the menu is light since I'm finishing up the semester. I do plan on lots of easy local meals of veggies and fruit.

Last night my husband made pesto with basil from our garden. Oh. My. Goodness. It was spectacular! I'll be trying that fruit salad soon. And I'm putting peaches on my list for the Farmer's Market this weekend. Peach season always seems to sneak up on me.

Your pics look so tasty! No fresh peaches here in MN (waaah!), but I've been checking my tomatoes and they're still green...once they turn red (and yellow) we'll be having lots of pasta and salad with fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil and balsamic.
