Yesterday, I made my weekly outing to the local farmers market and despite an organized shopping list and limited cash, I still walked away with a boatload of produce. After months of heavy food and dull produce it’s a refreshing change to have loads of fresh fruits and veggies with every meal. Last night: no knead bread (spiked with rosemary from my window plot), carrots with basil green goddess dressing, grape tomatoes with pesto, tomato soup, fried zucchini blossoms, and peach italian soda. I haven’t had fried zucchini blossoms since I was a little kid and it brought back lots of great memories of my grandmother. She was an avid gardener and an amazing cook. She always planted a ton of zucchini and found a thousand and one tasty uses for it.
Now that it is officially July, the study panic has really set in. Not much crafting and fun here anymore…although I have had a *big* project on the back burner that I turn to when I have the chance. Not so pretty as a WIP but I think it will be lovely (and useful) when I finally finish it. Stay tuned………….
