It's a busy day here in the Holt household. My husband is off doing a shoot for 3M and I'm diligently working on homework to finish my Fantasy Literature course for Fresno Pacific.We also have a casual wedding this evening.
I did sneak out early this morning to go to our beautiful Farmer's Market which I missed while in Colorado.
I picked up two baby eggplants, a basket of okra, and a nice-looking cucumber. I've been making a lot of easy dishes using garden produce especially using the large box of tomatoes I carted home from my mom's house.
I plan to make this eggplant recipe from The Chew; a cooking show my mom introduced me to. For dinner last night I whipped this recipe up created by me using lots of fresh produce.
Garden-Fresh Vegetables and Rice
1-2 T. of olive oil
1 yellow squash, diced without the inner seed section
1 small zucchini, diced
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
4-5 soft tomatoes, diced
1 can of garbanzo beans
Several large pinches of sea salt and curry powder
Fresh ground pepper
Cooked brown rice as much as will feed your family
My husband just finished Ragbrai (the famous ride across Iowa) yesterday and he had three helpings. My kids each ate one bowl and the only complaint Groovy Girl had was that I hadn't added enough tomatoes to her bowl. Enjoy!
Oh and Adam Duritz: What? Yes. He was part of my week!
