Summer Produce is THE BEST

20 Jun

flip on a show on hulu, grab a paring knife, and pit some cherries!

A day in the (very very happy) life:

-1 soft boiled egg

-ramekin-sized peach & sour cherry crisp, the crisp part being oats & sliced almonds with a bit of butter & sugar, with a dollop of amish yogurt.  this (with fruit varying based on whatever my csa gives me) is my new fave breakfast food.  make a handful at a time and eat cold.

Pre-lunch Snack

-handful of blueberries

-handful of brazil nuts


-spaghetti with zucchini & yellow squash, parmesan, and sun-dried tomato pesto (my roommate gave my basil plant a severe haircut to make this pesto, but it was so worth it)
Pre-dinner snack:-the most flavorful cucumber I’ve eaten since…well, last summer, probably.  Devoured while making “real” food, guilt-free, because, hello, it’s a cucumber

Creamy Swiss Chard Pasta
from one of my all-time favorite food blogs.  I will feel even better about this meal after I convince my roommates to go organic & maybe even local on milk and butter.

-roasted beets (roasted in aluminum foil and skinned after with paper towels…no mess!  Thank you, old faithful Best Recipe cookbook from Cooks Illustrated) with goat cheese

I’m going to go die of foodgasms now.
