Mangia Italiano!

Posted on

Italian feast. That’s what we can make with this week’s Friends and Farms basket.

Within this basket is a serious baseline for “gravy” or as known here in the States, tomato sauce.

Tomatoes. An onion. Garlic. Carrots. Basil. Sweet Italian sausage. Mushrooms. Really, you can have one very interesting experimental session making your own version of an Italian staple.

But, you know you can add that Swiss chard.

As for other meals, this is my egg and bacon week.

Eggs and bacon. There is probably not much else that just jumps up and makes us happy.

Well, maybe strawberries.

We all got a quart of strawberries. This should do well with finishing off that yogurt I bought last week.

And, the chicken.

This weekend. One spatchcocked grilled chicken coming up.

I forgot! Those pea shoots. You know, I definitely love pea shoots. But, they have to be eaten soon.

Great Memorial Day basket! Time to get grilling!

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
