The Yield Just Got More Interesting (July 17 – July 23, 2022)

Summertime brings an abundance of many things and vegetables are the big winners during the long growing season. Extra garden tomatoes, of course, can be gifted to neighbors or just try broiling the slightly over-ripe ones with the top cut off. First salt and pepper the prepared tomatoes and then top each with your favorite cheese. Yumm resonates, again… The summer yield for green beans can be exceptional and nothing beats a homemade green bean casserole! Once the green beans are cooked, drain and toss with fresh julienned carrots, sliced mushrooms, etc. and your favorite sauce. Then, top the casserole with almond slices to bake. Don’t forget to include summer squash to the kaleidoscope of vegetable opportunities. Summer squash has lovely edible blossoms and the squash yield can be creamed, sliced, diced, or stuffed for a grand array of yellow sunshine feasting. Your garden selections should be featured as the focal point of the kitchen table by placing the seasonal array on a tray, as the centerpiece of delectable delights. All are just waiting for your kitchen creativity! © Kelly McBride Loft
