CHILI BASIL ZUCCHINI CAKES WITH FRESH SHRIMP AND DIPPING SAUCE

This year we grew all of 3 zucchini’s.  It is definitely becoming more of a challenge to grow vegetables in my garden.  We do appreciate anything we do get…so hopefully everyone has not had their fill of zucchini and can take one more yummy dish.

Our neighbor gifted us with freshly caught shrimp – so delicious!  [...]

CHICKEN IN A TOMATO PESTO SAUCE ON A BED OF FRESH VEGETABLES

This was one yummy dinner – easy too.  I think it might even be “Paleo Friendly”…although, in all honesty I do not know too much about the Paleo diet.

UPDATE:  Shirley From Gluten Free Easily kindly let me know…this is not a meal that fits with the Paleo diet because of the cheese in the Pesto.  [...]

DRYING HERBS FOR TEA

TOMATO CHIPOTLE FLANK STEAK OVER LEMON GARLIC SWISS CHARD

Fresh organic Swiss Chard – simply delicious.  Add a marinated Flank Steak on top – heaven.  This was market bought Swiss Chard, as mine are still very small.

This has been a very strange summer.  It was a very cool spring and a very late start to the summer.  We even had one full day and [...]

CREAMY THREE CHEESE MUSHROOM SAUCE

This is the second cauliflower from our garden!  Who knew we could grow cauliflower in our ever challenging garden?  Now I wish I had planted more – next year.  As it turns out, DH is not all that crazy about cauliflower, but he did say it is much more sweeter and tastier than store bought.  [...]

Such a tragic loss, he [...]

GRAPEFRUIT MINT LEMONADE AND IN THE GARDEN

This was such a refreshing delicious lemonade.  I had gone to our local Nursery to buy my Basil Plants for the summer.  The owner was in the process of cutting back a large Grapefruit Mint Plant, and gifted me with the cuttings.  I had never heard of Grapefruit Mint before, have you?

The flavor of this [...]

A HEALTHY RICE AND BEEF CASSEROLE

My garden is exploding with Lambs quarter or as some call it:  a weed, or poor man’s spinach.  Whatever you like to call it is okay by me – I love this healthy green. Late May and June are the best months in my region to harvest young fresh Lambs Quarter Greens.  Although having said [...]

A DIFFERENT YEAR IN THE GARDEN

Well – this year it will certainly be a different year in the garden.  May and June so far have proven to be not the best we have ever seen, that is for sure.  Looking at the garden I would say we are 5-6 weeks behind.

This lovely big bowl of salad greens is this years [...]
