Letters from a Hill Farm
Thanks for sharing the recipe, Nan. It sounds delicious. I'll be trying this over the weekend methinks.Tasha
Yay for the garden! I just picked (from the Farmer's Market) tomatoes, onions, summer squash, corn, and peaches. I think a veggie saute and a smoothie featuring peaches are dinner tonight! Earlier this week I made a grilled corn and shrimp salad that was delicious. I love summer.
Off topic and no need to publish, just wanted to let you know that I just downloaded book 2 of the Hildegarde Withers series...enjoyed the first and I thank you for your suggestion and reviews. I like older mysteries for light reading -- and I had never heard of this author.
One of the things I miss the most from my home state of Michigan, now we live in Tasmania (25 years) is the sweet corn and tomatoes. Nowhere in the world have I ever tasted such wonderful veggies as in Michigan grown in that black dirt. So I enjoy seeing what you are enjoying where you live. Enjoy.
It sounds and looks delicious, and I bet it smelled and tasted just as good!
How delicious....I see from your header that 'the corn is as high as an elephant's eye'. Lovely to see it all.Carole
Looks good. I love summer squash and leeks (I'm a Welshman, how could I not love leeks?) and today is green market day.
This looks terrific. Easy to fix, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Nan.I love the corn picture in the header. First the blade and then the ear, and then the full corn shall appear . . .
This looks yummy. I like your header photo too.
Oh, this is the best time of year....All the summer produce, so fresh and delicious and such lovely simple vegetarian dishes to savor! I blogged about Hungarian lecsó yesterday, at thickethouse. I've also been enjoying salads of ribbons of summer squash (with a potato peeler used on baby squash) with just some onion, maybe a bit of grated radish and some slivers of peppers if you're feeling wildly extravagant, but the onion is enough) with oil and vinegar and salt to dress them.
I just had yellow squash, onions and tomatoes for supper. Your corn photo is so marvelous - what a reminder of my home state of Iowa!Tomorrow night there's sliced tomatoes and sweet corn, and then, the night after that, bacon and tomato sandwiches. If this isn't heaven, it's pretty close. And thanks for that suggestion to combine the veggies with pasta. I've never tried that, but will.
WE had the same tonight! I threw in some of the cherry tomatoes at the last minute. Yum.
With my tentative rural internet connection, your photo never loaded... but what a great deal of color just the words you wrote brought to my mind. Dinner sounds delicious (as do the plums in your subsequent post.)
Thanks to each of you for taking the time to leave me a note. Sorry to be so long in answering. All the produce is coming in now. We planted late peas hoping to have them in the fall. We'll see...
I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond. Sometimes that has taken a while, so I've decided to moderate them and post them as soon as possible, and then I'll respond when I get a chance. Please do come back because I will answer all your notes to me.Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
