Diving into Marion Nestle’s book What to Eat was the perfect reality check after a vacation that included a milkshake or scoop of ice cream nearly every day!
For supper last night, I wanted to take advantage of the summer produce we had available.
There was corn on the cob, given to us by a neighbor….
…. and fresh green beans from the grocery store.
With several tomatoes from our own plants, as well as some another neighbor shared, I decided to try a tomato pie. It came out of the oven looking delicious! I garnished it with some fresh basil from the pot on our patio.
Cantaloupe was a refreshing final course.
I even pulled out our nice white plates and blue stemware to add a special touch to this seasonal meal.
All was well…until I bit into the tomato pie. Soggy doesn’t quite describe its mushy texture!
So much for the perfect meal…but everything else was tasty!
I planned to have a picture of the girls as “future homemakers” helping me boil the corn and saute the green beans – but they left me alone in the kitchen in order to help their friend across the street run his lemonade stand!!
How are you enjoying the flavors of summer?
