Holiday Weekend part II–dinner
Okay, I know it’s sort of cheating, since none of this food is in season here yet. But this was just, you know, that meal, the first really lovely fresh springy dinner of the season.
I marinaded chicken breasts in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, tarragon, and a little salt, and my husband grilled them. He also grilled fresh baby zucchini from a similar marinade, and fresh ears of baby corn. For dessert we munched on fresh cherries. Just this entire meal of lovely freshness, nothing processed, cooked entirely outdoors without having to heat up the kitchen at all.
My garden is doing okay–so far the bunnies are respecting the chicken wire and staying out of the veggies, and they are growing nicely. The peas are growing, the eggplants look healthy, the kohlrabi have recovered from the initial bunny attack, and the tomatoes are…well…tomato-ing away as they should. My cuke and zuke hills are starting to spread out a bit too. So all is well. I can’t wait till we can have one of these kinds of meals from our own garden…
