What a nice July weekend. Yesterday we went kayaking on the Connecticut river with our friend Lisa. We put in in Thetford and paddled and talked down to the organic farm on the river and back. It was a sunny and breezy day so the trip was relaxing and quite enjoyable.
This morning I checked the gardens to see what had ripened in the past two days and picked a few things to either process or use in a few meals and sides for this week. It wasn’t a bad harvest considering it is still early in the season up here and the rain and shy sun this season have slow everything down. Today I picked green beans, zucchini, red ans yellow beets and kale.
Today I made:
- Kale and quinoa salad with black beans for lunches this week
- Sweet and spicy beet greens
- Kale chips (the ones I made a few days ago didn’t last long in this house)
- Oven baked vegetarian corn dogs (for lunch today with the balance frozen for future lunches)
