Dill grows so easily, almost like a weed, I think I'll just go snip some from my garden and throw it in with these cukes, red onion and vinegar and see what my husband says. Oh my goodness, this was a hit. He asked for more.
It even looks pretty with the cucumber and red onions marinating in that vinegar and salt. Yum. I have a lot of dill growing in my garden. I think I'll trying baking my fish with dill. Since my husband loves both salmon and dill, why not? Well, I'll tell you what... he loved it!
I was in a hurry as usual so I did my beans and potatoes like this. I steamed the potatoes first with the lid on. When they were about two minutes from being done, I pick fresh green beans, rinsed them off and tossed them on top, replacing the lid. In about two minutes the beans were done.
I like melted some Smart Balance (used for the healier heart diet) ya know, and to that I added fresh clipped chives, salt, pepper and garlic.
I drizzled that over the steamed potatoes and they looked like this. My mother used to do that. Thanks for the idea Mom. Everyone loved it. It tasted like an expensive restaurant.
Last but not least I tried fresh basil on the only good tomato I could find in my garden. A lil salt; a lil pepper and there you have it.
Simply scrumptious!! I think I may become a gourmet yet!!!
I bought my tomato plants in JUNE. I bought them because they were called, "EARLY GIRL." Well, today is SEPTEMBER 18th, and these aint EARLY!!!
FINALLY some red ones were discovered YAY!!
Only the slugs had their meal first. DRAT!
Believe me this one was on it's way to being perfect yesterday. What happened over night?
I've been afraid to take them off the vine because they say the flavor is in the vine. Well, I give up!!
Plan 'B' is to ripen them still on the vine, if possible indoors with the pears!! I'll let you know. I'm thankful and hopeful for my garden. I do think this is going to work and that there really will be salsa next week. Have a great day.
