Getting Creative with Dinner and a Little Treat from the Garden
My friend (thanks Sara) brought me the biggest Zucchini that I have ever seen in my life! It must have weighed about 6 lbs (just a guess and not necessarily as good one) So I cut on the curve to make it easier to cut in half. Scooped out the seeds and then I had to figure out what to do with it. I got creative with the goodies that I had picked up at the farmers market. Sauteed onion and fresh organic leeks with garlic, basil (grown on my windowsill) with diced red pepper, sun dried tomatoes, black beans and brown rice. Seasoned it kind of spicy, and sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on it. The corn was picked this morning and so juicy and fresh. So delicious!
