Summer Bounty

Summer Bounty

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!

Celebrate with the Last of Summer's Bounty and Welcome Fall!

With this end of season approaching, the garden peaks, roadside stands and farmers’ markets are brimming over with fresh produce. At this point we are taking summer ripe tomatoes for granted and many of us have been trying to give our surplus zucchini and cucumbers to anyone who will take them. Corn and melons are starting to run low, peaches too, and now mums and apples are appearing everywhere.

Three Sisters Saute

Three Sisters Saute

Here is a dish to enjoy right now! Squash, beans, and corn are crops that are often grown together in the southwestern U.S. and are commonly referred to by Native Americans as the three sisters. This sauté is easy to make and the measurements do not need to be exact. Sometimes, I might not have a bell pepper, other times I might add a ripe tomato, finely chopped. If you do not like cilantro, substitute fresh basil, or Italian flat-leaved parsley combined with some Italian oregano. The roasted chiles add a wonderful flavor—if they are not hot—add serranos or jalapenos for heat according to taste.

Roasted poblano chiles and cream—one of the showstoppers of Mexican cuisine—welcomes zucchini and corn into the classic mix. As is, it’s an unbeatable taco filling; with grilled or broiled chicken, the combination becomes an unforgettable main dish.
