SUMMER EATING

Bread baking continues. Three loaves. One for my neighbor for the fresh eggs she gives me. This just might be the best loaf of challah bread I ever made, followed by the biggest tea biscuits I've made.
The trip to the farmers market gave me some wonderful fruit. I could eat cherries all day. The strawberries and blueberries will be great for breakfast and the squash and cocktail tomatoes will be diced up and added to a bow tie cold pasta dish, mixed with various fresh herbs and a olive oil dressing with minced garlic and fresh grated cheddar and parmesan cheeses.

I love summer eating...no hot cooking for me. And the watermelon this season had been most excellent.

  2. Okay, I need to ask, what's the difference between your squash and a zucchini?

    1. That is actually a zucchini. I have a habit of using the term squash more. But there is not much difference in green squash or zucchini expect the time they are harvested. Come fall. I love my butternut squash recipes.

  3. This all looks fabulous. And your post has reminded me that I need to buy another watermelon before the season is over. Some peaches, too. We have wonderful peaches in South Carolina!

  6. As a subtle hint, Balder brought home peaches. I'll have to make a cobbler in the cool of the morning since he was kind enough to bribe me with a watermelon.

    1. Peach cobbler? I would love to try your peach cobbler. I think there is a Redeye...what time should I be there? I've had hide nor hair of a peach this season yet.

    2. I usually use canned peach slices, but we know people with fruit trees who are getting rid of them. It's better for me to use canned, because I'll eat the others. As a general rule, I don't care for fresh peaches because of a traumatic experience I had as a child with the fuzz, but the smell is so good I can't resist. You are perfectly welcome but you zucchini is not!

    4. I've eaten my fair share because of generous gardeners giving them to me. It's rude to let them just sit there so I was obligated to suck a few down. Don't like the taste. I don't like any kind of squash.

  13. OMG...The bread and biscuits look soooooo good and the last thing my fat ass needs. And not to be clichรฉ, but this black gal could live on watermelon. It has been rather better than usual this year...and expensive.

  19. We've been enjoying all shapes and sizes of peaches and plums, and sweet, sweet nectarines. But, oh that bread. My grandmother would be proud of you! (Although my preference would be a couple of those giant tea biscuits.)
