Monday Tuesday – August 18, 2015
Late again, because I’ve had a busy couple of days.
Zucchini, zucchini, always zucchini… and tomatoes. There were more tomatoes, a handful for lunch every day, that I didn’t take pictures of.
Pasta with tomatoes and zucchini for a quick dinner.
I harvested all the chard in the community garden, because I was sick of having to water it all the time – it’s been very hot and very dry for weeks, and the chard, with its big leaves, needed a lot of water. I still haven’t eaten it, though, it all went into the freezer.
Chopping and blanching all of it (1.7 kg) took me about two hours…
My beets are getting quite big, too. I ate this one grated, with grated apple and mashed bananas – my mother made that sometimes when I was a child, and I still like it. It’s how I eat most of my beets, actually.
