Summer has arrived. Really arrived. Hot, humid, perfect weather for the garden to flourish.
The first zucchini. Out of that 100 square ft area in my garden. I like to pick the earliest ones when they are small, and do a simple dish with them. The massive zucchini will come later when I find them hiding under the leaves.
We got some really good stuff in our Friends and Farms basket Thursday. Atlantic Bluefin and ground lamb are the stars.
We did the tuna Thursday, and made mega meatballs tonight from one of the packages of lamb.
I do a “no measure” meatball. Putting in bread crumbs, an egg, za’atar and cumin, salt and pepper, a few scallions. Baking at 350 degrees until perfectly browned.
A few meatballs. Sautéed zucchini. New potatoes from up at Jenny’s market.
Followed by one really great dessert. Strawberry rhubarb dessert bars.
Not too bad for a hot humid Saturday. Here’s to more meals from local foods. Here’s to celebrating summertime.
