Eating from the Bounty

We have been enjoying the fruits of the season around here. Above: Plum Tomato Goat cheese Pie and Blueberry Peach Delight, both from the much loved Simply in Season. One day soon we hope to have the first tomatoes from our garden, but in the meantime some beautiful tomatoes from the farmers market will have to stand in (topped with some homegrown basil). And you probably recognize those blueberries from our picking adventure last week. It is a miracle I guarded enough to make a pie.

The adults in the house loved both, but goat cheese is still a bit too complex for the littles. Perhaps one day if we have goats of our own they'll change their minds?


And of course I had to give you a peak at my garden helpers: Zosia in her lovely gardening hat, Lily "watering" the garden, and Aunt Irene leading the whole crew.

What have you been eating, and what's growing in your neck of the woods?

Oh I sure hope we get to see those lovely faces this weekend. And how I wish closer to sample those yummy treats.

We're huge on quinoa with any and all of our CSA produce and that we're getting from our little garden at the moment. We're just splashing it with some red wine vinegar and olive oil and topping it with feta cheese. Any and all food recommendations would be much appreciated--- you're amazing in the kitchen, Adele!
