I just came in from the garden -- and boy, is it ever warm out there -- but that's okay, because it felt so good to get out and dig around. I did notice something, though. I am very poor at timing my garden. Right now, the following items are growing, but not ripe: Avocados, bananas, oranges, green beans, peas, and squash. If it all comes on at the same time, we'll have to start our own CSA. Most frustrating are the bananas. look at that picture - two big hands up there, and what do you want to bet they'll all be ready at once. Bananas, at least for us, are feast or famine. I am most excited about the oranges. Technically, maybe they are tangerines. They are "clementines" but they are much larger than the ones you see in the stores. Last year we got exactly one from the tree. One. However, it was absolutely perfect and delicious. I hope this big crop will be as sweet.
Well, what's on the menu, this week? For starters, I never got around to making that cheeseburger casserole I meant to make last week, so we'll have that. Mr. L's appetite, after being ill, was still sub-par so we ate sort of on the light side. Here we go:
Sunday: Cheeseburger Casserole with Tomatoes
Monday: Tacos with Fresh Guacamole (and yes, I had to buy the avocado, although our tree is just full of them)
Tuesday: Ravioli, French Bread, and Salad
Wednesday: Quiche; Fruit Salad
Thursday: Kabocha Squash and Sausages over Rice
Friday: Chicken Meatballs and Pasta; Yellow Squash
Saturday: Leftover Surprise ;-)
Have an interesting week. Let's all do one scary thing and one random, anonymous, nice thing.
