Monday Menu

Another simple but delicious garden meal…

Tonight’s Menu

Zucchini* Hash

Bulgur

Salad of Baby Greens*

sliced cucumbers*

Zucchini hash was an on-the-spot invention designed to use up some of the veggies in the fridge. I sautéed a chopped onion° and two small chopped carrots°, added diced zucchini* and some corn kernels*. A little salt and yumminess ensued. Served with bulgur.

Salad of baby greens (mizuna, Chinese mustard, arugula, lettuce, spinach, all from the garden)  topped with a foraged apple, goat cheese°and walnuts°.

Monday Menu

What should I say about tonight’s menu?

“Most of the things were from our garden. It was delicious! Especially the corn. It was straight from the garden. You picked it and then you cooked it.” – Sofie

“We had our own roasted string beans and they were very good. They were delicious. We roasted them with garlic.” – Olivia

“I also liked the zucchini. We didn’t get a lot of zucchinis this summer. But we’re getting more now.” – Sofie

“It was all from our garden, except the salt and pepper, the cheese and the butter and the olive oil.” – Olivia

Tonight’s Menu

roasted string beans* and garlic

zucchini*, onions° and cheese

tomato* salad

salad of baby greens*

corn on the cob*

homemade bread

Once again, nothing complicated, just fresh vegetables. I roast the string beans with olive oil and peeled garlic cloves until they are slightly caramelized. Sprinkle with salt and serve. The zucchini is sautéed with onions and topped with cheese. The tomatoes are sliced and dressed with a bit of olive oil and salt. The corn is steamed until barely done. The salad is just mixed baby arugula, lettuce, spinach, mustard and mizuna. I topped it with the tomatoes.

First corn of the season and it was so good! Not the starchy, heavy stuff I bought at the farmer’s market a month ago. This was real sweetcorn, just ripe, juicy and sweet.

THIS is why I have a garden…

Tomatoes and corn. The rest is just filler.

It was a cold and blustery weekend, so we spent it indoors, sewing and sowing.

Corn in toilet paper rolls, to be plunked roll and all in the ground as soon as it warms a bit.

I saw this cute and easy shirt pattern, and decided to try it. Here is the result:

I was so inspired, I stitched up some shorts for Olivia. She got inspired, too and made her own top.

Cute shorts, cute top, cute girl!
