It's that time of year when we are reaping the harvest--benefiting from all of our earlier hard labor--and approaching a vegetable glut! Hot weather makes us want to cook less, so think about making salads in the morning or on the weekend to have for supper, then you just need to slice some tomatoes and cucumbers and maybe steam some corn. Enjoy the bounty now!

Our gardens are in full swing and one of my favorite summer vegetables is eggplant! There are infinite ways to cook this tasty aubergine. In Greece, it is beloved and on every menu in at least three to five different preparations. I have only two varieties in my garden, however the farmers' markets are brimming over with eggplants in every color and shape. Enjoy them now!

It is that laid-back lazy hazy days of summer time. It is almost too hot to go out to the garden during the day, so many gardeners get up early in order to get weeding, watering and garden chores done before the heat of the day arrives. If I have time, I often plan what to have for supper, harvest and cook it in the morning, so I don’t have to heat up the house later in the day.
