July 11 weekly menu | summer table

Farm Fresh

beets, fava beans, fennel, garlic, gourmet greens, kale, lettuce, summer squash

What’s for Dinner?

Blueberries!!! That’s what. Twenty-one pounds’ worth…our annual haul from a trip out to the blueberry fields of Sauvie Island. I’ll freeze some (a lot!) and still have loads leftover to grace the dinner (and breakfast, and lunch, and dessert) table. Combined with four more pounds of fava beans, a couple heads of romaine larger than my own head, and summer squash galore, I’d say this season is in full swing!
