It can add some spice and re-energize one at the end of a long day to come up with a way to combine the produce available for a meal or to get it put up for future enjoyment.
Last Saturday we had a few baby gourmet zucchinis, basil stems, a bit of dill weed and green peppers left.
The green peppers were no challenge, those are awesome roasted for later use in salads or omelets or soups or salsa.
OH yes lots of ways to use those.
Next, what to do with zucchini and basil. Google to the rescue! Found a great recipe for zucchini-basil pesto. Here is the result:
Dill weed is a summer standard in my kitchen, any left over from market simply goes into the vase on the kitchen counter. This week added the vase of daisies from market to the counter-top.
Not eating the dasies, simply enjoying their beauty in the kitchen.
Life is good indeed. I always hope that people who bought produce from us at market enjoy it as much as we do.
What produce do you like to buy at farmers market?
Thanks again for stopping by, wishing you a happy and healthy summer.
