Garden Produce!

Woo, we're home from vacation. And let me tell you, the food was yummy in Canada, but I was still craving some plain ol', fresh garden veggies.

Fortunately, my Mom is like my own personal CSA. She grows a huge garden and shares it with everyone within driving distance. (Whether they want zucchini or not!)

This afternoon, Mom dropped off a giant box of beets, squash, peas, carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Problem solved, I happily cut up a little of everything and made a tasty, simple supper.

The beets were wrapped in foil and baked. The stirfry has no recipe. It's just carrots, tomatoes, pea pods, squash and zucchini, onions and a few herbs from my patio.

Yum. Have a great evening.

Oh. My. GAWDS. That is SO gorgeous! The next time you get a chance to use up some beets, try them crispy baked. Instead of wrapping them in tinfoil, just let them lay out on a wire rack, spray with a touch of nonstick cooking spray (or olive oil in a mister) and let it bake gently at 350F until they're crispy. It takes like 20 - 30 minutes or so, but is soooooo worth it!
