A piece of grilled naan bread.  Before that, a bowl of roast potatoes.  Hi carb, FTW tonight, apparently.

Earlier today - wild blueberries straight off the mountain ten minutes before, in vanilla yogurt.

Parmesan chicken with homemade pasta.
(Love the pasta machine we got as a gift from the wife's parents. That thing is pro.)

And yesterday chicken pepper stew.

Made a noodle-free "lasagne" tonight using:

Ground beef from our cow share
Farmer's cheese I made from marked-down milk this afternoon
Spinach
Mushrooms
Onion
Garlic just harvested from the back yard
Tomato sauce canned from last year's harvest
Zuchinni "noodles"

For now it's really just flour and eggs and salt.

Daughter's birthday party, made pizzas and attempted a millefeuille.

The pizzas were 2x caramelized onion and feta, 2x pesto sweetcorn.

The millefeuille didn't really have enough time to set adequately and the piping work was disastrous, it's my first try to pipe chocolate. The puff pastry was amazing though.

Eating a stir fry. We always use a stir fry as a template for visiting the farmer's market, and have fresh veggie-heavy stir fry on saturday nights.

This week it is a bell pepper, a mid-spicy pepper, some zucchini, shredded carrots, and chicken. We serve it over rice with a maple syrup/soy sauce reduction. Scratches the thai food itch with very little work.

Apple, Pear and Ginger Crumble with custard. DH is away which means I don't have to cook "real" meals for a couple of days... This is in lieu of dinner.

Lunch yesterday was somewhere between a pint and a quart of blackberries. Average time from cane to mouth was definitely under 1.5 s. It was glorious. The berries weren't free, precisely, because this is the season of the berries at the bottom of the brambles ripening, at least on the south slope near the house. So picking requires getting right down in the bushes, and I paid for my lunch in blood. Totally worth it.

Blackberries, man I'm craving to experience those again. Every meal should be paid for in blood. My meal on Saturday was paid for with a massive finger blister when I grabbed the hot baking tray, but it doesn't feel quite so primitive.

I keep a small bottle of Lavender Essential oil (the real stuff, not fragrance oil) in our kitchen because I burn myself all.the.time. Everything from steam burns to oil splatters to contact burns, it works great, takes the pain away immediately and helps prevent scarring/tissue damage.

I had a hardboiled egg with hummus. They work shockingly well together. Highly recommend, I think this'll become a regular combo for me.

Big salad in a lovely wooden bowl. Lettuce, peppers, cukes, grated carrot, 1/2 can of tuna, hardboiled egg, homemade dressing.

@swick,
Thanks for the info on lavender oil -- I didn't know that! I have a bottle in my kitchen for diffusing in my little machine!

Oatmeal with cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins. I'll probably tuck into a plum as well in the not-so-distant future.

Remnants of last night's Thai (friends brought it over for my husband's birthday).

I saved the satay sauce and added it to leftover rice and frozen greens for work lunch.

We had around 8 guests over last night so made a big old helping of mince and pasta with a bechamel sauce. It was quite delicious. Oh, and the wife made a zucchini bread to go with.

Smoothie from 1/3 a box each of questionable strawberries and blueberries from the fridge. Also added 1 sad looking banana, a scoop of protein powder, skim milk, ice, and a slurp of homemade vanilla.

Enough for myself and husband, 2 kids, and the rest made 8 Popsicles in molds  for the freezer

I am always impressed with your culinary adventures.
Tonight will be grilled chicken with Greek seasoning, a chop salad with garden produce (tomato, cucumber, green pepper, sweet corn, roasted red pepper, Greek olives,  garbanzo beans, feta, Parmesan, vinaigrette), and then ice cream sundaes with homemade fudge sauces and fruit.
Big cucumber yield this year, may be for tomato too but they are slow this year. Other stuff from vendors, some local.

Slaved away all day to make a welcome dinner for one of hubby's new co-workers (ironically, the guy who hired my hubby at his last job - and gave him his career start.) As he is moving his family down from the frozen north, wanted to showcase all the bounty and awesomeness available in our area.

Our menu tonight:

A medley of garden fresh and lightly steamed Crudités ( Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cucumber, Carrot) with garden herb dip

Garden Tomato, Cucumber, Basil, Feta marinated salad with a Pomegranate molasses and Tuscan olive oil vinaigrette

Freshly baked Cheddar and Green Onion Boule

Organic local Oxtail Red Wine Ragu served over homemade Cracked  Black and Marash Pepper Fettuccine. Dusted with Chastinet Asiago and Popped Capers.

I am very looking forward to this :)

Hashbrowns and a snooty moka pot latte for me. The moka pot is in rough shape (hand-me-down from an aunt, probably purchased in the 80s), but I found out yesterday you can cheaply replace the gasket and filter.

Chicken Gizzards, cucumbers drizzled in olive oil.   I'm going Ketogenic this week.   I'll pretty much just be drinking the olive oil straight from the bottle by Saturday.

Had some homemade yogurt with cinnamon and sliced banana earlier.

Now I'm working on some leftover smoked brisket.

When actual lunchtime hits, it will be veggies with homemade hummus, washed down with some homemade kombucha.

Pumpkin pie spice chia pudding. It's coconut milk, pumpkin puree, honey, spices, and chia seeds to thicken it. Yummy, quick to make, and a great way to eat squash.
