You'll notice something strange about the next few photos....it's not raining! All in all, just a few random food posts and some ponderings.
One being--I'd never really baked eggs before outside of casseroles and cakes--this time, it ended up not being quite ideal. The yolks set a little too hard. Regardless, it was magnificently convenient and can be perfected, I'm sure. Here are Sunday's eggs thrown into our "cookie sheet" after the potatoes were pretty much done.
I have made this soup many times before, but nothing quite beats a zucchini tomato soup when you happen to have fresh zukes and tomatoes ;)
Basic recipe--one onion, 2-3 zukes, as many tomatoes as you can grab, peeled, cook down with your italian herbs and stir in some cream (sour cream in our case) and fresh basil and oregano from the garden. I also threw in some tomato paste to hold it all together.
Toasted english muffin with cheddar and some more fresh herbs. I like the crevices in english muffins--you can grab more soup with these than with your average toast.
While I was cooking, Tavo separated and repotted our very healthy begonias and nasturtiums.

Tonight, we just whipped up everything that remains when you're holding out for Saturday's farmer's market. I still had a bag of spinach, but otherwise its ramen and some frozen chicken for Tavo.
Curry chicken over garlic spinach and ramen. Didn't taste terrible, but it needs something. We couldn't quite decide what, though. Any suggestions?
They just moved all our stuff into our old house. Boxes everywhere. I'm trying not to be too overwhelmed! Luckily, we have a three day weekend coming up. Here's to some sunny days.
Okay, this is random, but WOW. I was searching youtube for "Summertime" and found this very intense Mahalia Jackson recording. (as if non-intense Mahalia existed...)
This is worth checking out, though it has a much darker note than I intended for the post.
