Default Dinner From the Garden

I got home last night completely bushed. I mixed up a ####tail and headed out to check the status of our veggie

garden. The Princess especially loves our annual little 'farm'.

I picked a couple of big summer squash and a hat full of green

beans.

I had some leftover shiitake mushrooms/shrimp/lobster from my B-Day dinner and some cheese in the refrigerator.

I called

Yutaka for some advice and hatched a plan.

I cut the squash into big strips, doused with olive oil, added salt/pepper and Emeril's

essence and let them sit for a few.

Meanwhile I cut up some bacon (It's a pork fat thang..!) and chopped an onion and sauteed them. I

took them outta the pan and tossed them in with the grean beans which were steaming. I deglazed the skillet with some Napa Pinot Grigio and

reduced it.

In a sauce pan I put a can of cheese soup, some milk, cheddar and jack cheese, the wine reduction and the minced up

shrimp/shiitake/lobster. pepper and a little lemon juice was squeezed in. I heated this through and whisked until it was creamy.

I then

grilled the squash on my stove top grillpan and plated it with som herbs from the garden.

This was all done under close scrutiny of

carpefishus who stopped by for a quick beer.

The Princess was very happy with dinner.

Way to go Chuck!

Dang, you're harvesting early this year. My tomato plants are just setting fruit.

I've had some INCREDIBLE apricots, and the necatrines and a hybrid cherry/plum are just starting. Peaches probably about 4th of July. I'm

hoping for a repeat of last year's persimmon harvest, which was truly wonderful.

Knock it if you will, but a lot of home grown fruits

and veges bear the same resemblance to store bought stuff that fresh tuna does to store bought stuff.

Brad

We are harvesting squash, beans, cucumbers and a hybrid Golden Delicious apple, Also the

blackberries are having a banner year. We just put those on our vanilla ice cream.

The tomatoes are as heavy with fruit as I have ever

seen! I used a product called GRO POWER (5-3-1) this year in the holes when I planted the tomatoes and veggies.

The Navel orange tree is

just setting fruit. The Lime and Lemon also. The peaches are coming along and the herbs are Bonzo right now. We have some volunteer melons or

gourds...we cant tell yet. And some volunteer tomatoes which usually become cherry tomatoes.

Sounds good Chuck. I choose the varieties of my fruit trees so that they ripen at different times rather than being

inundated with all the fruit at once. Here's a picture of some of the apricots--they were incredibly sweet, colored up real well, and were

big, like a small peach. Just a primo crop this year.
