Summer is here once again. Although I have neglected my recipes, I certainly have not neglected my kitchen. My two little boys are eating me out of house and home! We planted a garden again this year. Really, we felt we had little choice. The extra sun that resulted from the removal of a shade tree, and the compost we have been making, have turned out to be a true culinary blessing. It is only the first week of June and we are overrun with squash, zucchini, half-runner green beans, and cucumbers! The cayennes and tomatoes aren't too far behind and my okra plants have just begun to blossom! Amazingly enough, the other corner of my little yard in the city is so cool and damp that it's still producing the most delicious lettuces and swiss chard! I am truly in Heaven. As the squash and zucchini begin to fill my kitchen, I am reminded of this world of recipes that I have been neglecting.
Tonight my husband is re-creating my squash casserole and we have revisited my zucchini bread recipe. I haven't made a frozen lasagna yet, but I did manage to create a shrimp pasta that got great reviews. My oldest son has a fondness for shrimp, so I decided to combine shrimp, zucchini, squash, angel hair pasta, and a fabulous pesto!
