summer favorites

Summer for me is a time of simple, delicious foods. Fresh vegetables picked right from our garden, sweet fruit enjoyed after meals, and easy dinners prepared with a few fresh ingredients.

(easy apricot tart using fresh, organic apricots- yum!)

Lately we've been enjoying the rewards of having our own garden. We've already been able to pick a few cucumbers, tomatoes, swiss chard, herbs, and garlic!

In addition we've been eating lots of fruits and berries available from our local farmers, and using the vegetables we've been getting from our CSA share to create easy meals.

(mixed greens from Urban Growth Farms, and our own cucumbers!)

Hope you're having a wonderful, relaxing summer!

  1. Your garden is producing some gorgeous produce! Your swiss chard pasta is making me hungry for lunch and I just ate breakfast:)

    Bar Symon was awesome. I'm looking forward to trying B Spot one of these days. If it had been a little closer than we would've went there for sure. Thanks for commenting!!
