Again, straight from our garden…

It’s so fantastic to go out into the garden and pick dinner! I know people get tired of their zucchini plants by the end of the summer, but I don’t think I will. In fact, I’m already planning to plant TWO next year instead of just one. Haha.

Our Japanese eggplant has also been quite productive, and for this meal, I combined the two in a simple stir-fry. Just cooked in a little oil and with a sprinkle of salt. I thought of adding more seasonings, but the rice has a strong flavor and I didn’t want to overshadow the FRESH veggie taste.

Oh goodness! It’s me in the kitchen WITHOUT an apron! It’s only because this meal took like 5 minutes to cook… though usually when I do this I get something on my shirt. I didn’t this time, which was incredibly lucky. My face looks all tired and hot (we went to the gym that day, and I only changed my shorts before dinner), but I look thin and good other than that. haha.

This is the rice... it takes 20 minutes or a little less to cook, and it’s very yummy. Also quite cheap.

And… here’s dinner! Yum!

Should I keep including the recipes I make with my garden-veggies in the “gardening” category? Or should I just do food/recipes/how-to, but leave out gardening?

I am from Oklahoma and I live in Las vegas now. I used to love going out to my parents garden and picking stuff and cooking with it. I no longer have a garden, but I do have a VERY good organic store close that contains food grown by local farmers. Windermer Farms. So please keep the garden recipe’s coming. I love em. I may come back to the good ol midwest someday and would be a shame to not see these wonderful garden recipe’s. Keep up the good work. Also I am curious, how did you get a website like this? I too cook and have some wonderful recipe’s that I would like to share….in a website like form such as yours…
