Meal plan for the week
Sunday: pizzas on the grill with Green Tomatoes, Sweet Onions, Basil and some of last week's Zucchini (in addition to figs and some other farmer's market finds)
Monday: Broccoli, Swiss Chard omelettes, summer salad with Lettuce, Cucumbers and Strawberries
Tuesday: Lemon, tarragon (from the garden), and Sweet Onion chicken with Fried Green Tomatoes (I've always loved that movie, and have always wanted to try making them!)
I was so excited to see tomatoes in the box this week, and my husband picked up some peaches as well; my two summer favorites. Unlike many winter favorites, nearly nothing needs to be done to the best summer ingredients to enjoy them. Every minute not spent in the kitchen is another minute that I can spend outside with my family, or tending to my own garden, a must as we wait for our own own tomatoes, melons, squash, cucumbers, peppers, etc. to be ready for harvest time!
Finally starting to get some height and, most importantly, blossoms!
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name from the soundtrack to Grease.
