I feel terrible, you guys. How have I not blogged all summer? I’ve been making sooo much good stuff. You don’t even know (of course you don’t, I haven’t been telling you!). If you follow me on FB/Twitter/Instagram you been getting a few sneak peeks, but the truth is with summer’s bounty at my fingertips, I have been making some KICK ASS dinners, drinks, desserts-- you name it.
I figure the easiest way to share as much of this as possible is a good, old-fashioned food porn roundup. Even when I’m not blogging regularly, I always MEAN to blog, so I’m always taking pictures, then getting too busy/lazy to post them. But, I’ve still got them, and they’re coming at you... NOW:
Tiny carrots I grew myself! Here they are as an appetizer along with bread fried in bacon fat:
Also during early summer I got my hands on some rhubarb and made some Rhubarb-Rosewater Syrup to make a sweet and slightly tart mocktail (just mix with sparkling water to make this refreshing pink drink)
And THEN I made these rhubarb streusel muffins that were To Die For:
Keeping things a little sweet, a little tart, BEHOLD this cool cocktail EP made for our little 4th of July get-together:
|Grapefruit juice, gin, and basil-sugar. The mason jar makes it.|
|Chilled corn soup with lime, cilantro and hot sauce|
|Zucchini Feta Fritters|
|picked them ourselves!|
|I love a cake that can also be breakfast|
Finally, PEACHES. We picked over 40 pounds of white and yellow peaches (AND all the berries, at the wonderful Larriland Farms) and so far made hardly a dent in them despite making peach jalapeno jam, and peach gazpacho. I'll make a peach pie/cobbler before I process and freeze the rest. Here is Eddie patiently waiting for them to ripen...
