Things on the garden front are looking really good. The disease that was on my Brandywines seems to be moving to the larger tomato bed and it has me worried. I'll watch it carefully.
This weekend I harvested some zucchini, two hot banana peppers, two pots of potatoes, three colors of carrots, ALL of the garlic and some rosemary. So, for the first time in my life, I made roasted veggies with everything from the garden. I was so excited.
First I buttered a dish. Check out this dish I got from my Mom's friend, Sherilyn, in St. Louis. It's by far my new favorite dish. If you can see through the poor picture, it's like a Chinese take-out tin.
I put the frozen onions from a while ago, tons of the newly pulled garlic, the carrots potatoes and rosemary in for a while.
Then when it was almost done cooking I put in the hot peppers and zucchini. Here's the finished product:
I was crazy happy and proud. Yes, I've sauteed veggies, made salsa and always eaten what's come from the garden, but whatever the dish was, it always had something extra in there. This was totally from the garden (I don't count the butter and salt). I was crazy proud and it was crazy good.
The only problem is that some of that butter got good and burned into the plate and now it's a bit discolored. I need to find out how to fix that without taking off the finish. :(
I hope you all have a peaceful memorial day. We'll be having some family over and I'm hoping that some of those zucchini will fatten up so we can grill them. I have some ichiban eggplants I'm hoping will fatten up tomorrow as as well.
