What’s for Dinner?
Lots of “firsts” this week for me…the first I’ve seen of beans, corn, tomatoes, and Walla Walla Sweets! I get so excited at the first tastes of these gems, I often do very little preparation. Just enjoying them in their simplest form, with just a little salt, olive oil, and browning, caramelizing, or grilling is such a treat. Even the veggies that aren’t so “new” at this point still feel fresh and exciting. Parsley, that I never tire of, especially when I convert it into a very special Argentinian sauce. Summer squash that seems to arrive by the armload again and again – with so many uses from pizza to indian to eggs to bread – it just never gets old to me. And beets, that I mentally convert to “summer beets” (event though there is no such thing), and continue to use them in fresh, new ways. Ever had a beet burger, or a BLB?
