Summer Vegetables are in Peak Season: Photo’s from our kitchen, our summer meals and an odd looking mango

In our household we love to eat light veggie meals in the summertime. We have lots of local fresh produce from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee available now and all the summer produce is at its peak, so we create meals around what is available at our farmer’s market.

Butternut Squash

Roasted with Cinnamon and Sea Salt

Spiced and Roasted Squash Seeds

Guacamole and Crudite’

Guacamole is a staple in our household during summer

Beets and Beer

Beets and beet tops sautéed in garlic, olive oil and sea salt served with spiced rice on top of a fresh fennel salad

Roasted Broccoli with Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Fresh Garlic 

Roasted Pablano’s

Scraping the seeds out of pablanos


Summer Salad with Garden Fresh Radishes

This is a mango from a friends mango tree. Notice the odd hook it grew, it was still a very sweet and juicy tasting mango.

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!
