My garden is coming along well, right along with the weeds :). I made a cabbage and ramen salad tonight with cabbage, green onions, and carrots from the garden. I've also made several dishes with summer squash and zucchini. I have made a pasta salad with zucchini, fried zucchini and grilled zucchini. Y is so sick of zucchini. I would gladly take any recipes or cooking suggestions with either zucchini or summer squash.
Lil Punk and I ate the first ripe cherry tomatoes today. I love, love tomatoes. I like eating them plain, in salads, cooking with them in almost all dishes, stuffing them with rice and cheese, in relishes or salsas, in soup, broiled, grilled and any other way I can think of. They were the one food I craved when I was pregnant with Lil Punk and it seems like she now shares my tomato appreciation.
We've eaten the following from our garden: kohlrabi, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, cabbage, onions, beets, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, ground cherries, bell peppers, hot peppers, carrots, peas, and tomatoes. The other things we would like to eat are the following: corn, tomatillos, garlic, edamame, lima beans, shell beans, string beans, parsnips, acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkins, turnips, and potatoes.
We celebrated Lil Punk's fourth birthday yesterday. I love the age she is now. I don't want her to grow up. She's so perfect (in my eyes!). She got quite practical birthday gifts. I'm decorating her room for a little girl. I ordered a bunk bed set online but it didn't make it here for her birthday. I am excited to see how her room looks when its all done.
Do you have a garden? How's it coming along?
