I've updated the total harvest on the sidebar to show the last two day's picking. I can't believe that cucumber and zucchini total.
Tonight we had the green beans that we've picked over the last few days. We just love the Fortex beans, but wish we had more of them. Those vines just weren't as vigorous as we would have liked them to be.
We also had Golden Gorgonzola Potatoes. I had no idea what Gorgonzola tasted like to begin with, but MAN were they good. The recipe came from the potato's bag, so I was a bit skeptical. The man and I both liked it. The girl wouldn't touch it. Then again, she doesn't eat much of anything. The boy is still working on his dinner. He's been working on it for almost an hour now. That's getting old.
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it. I highly recommend it.
2 pounds gold potatoes peeled and cut into thin slices
Water -enough to cover
1 cup Alfredo sauce (I used more)
1/2 cup French-fried onions (divided)
1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (I used a bit more)
2 tablespoons garlic butter (I used garlic Alfredo sauce and regular butter)
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large saucepan, place potatoes and water. Bring to boiling; then boil three minutes.
In large bowl, combine Alfredo sauce, 1/4 cup fried onions, cheese, garlic butter and salt.
Drain potatoes and gently stir into cheese mixture. Spoon mixture into baking dish and top with remaining fried onions.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes until hot and bubbly.
Again, very, very good.
Anyway, for today I put pictures of the Cayenne peppers which are turning red. It seems to have taken these incredibly long to do so, but they sure are pretty. These will be a nice color addition to the pepper sauce I've been making. I'm not thrilled with hot, spicy things and I don't know if I'll grow this again since I won't use them in anything but the pepper sauce, but again, they sure are pretty.The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
