Boy, those don’t sound good together do they?
Don’t worry, we didn’t eat them all at once.
On Wednesday, we harvested the first tomato from our plants. It was a little small but very delicious! We sliced it up and put it on our pizza along with cheese and pepperoni.
Yesterday, I just felt like doing some cooking. For lunch I made Egg Rolls. I followed this recipe and they were amazing. I love they they’re baked. While maybe they’re still not the healthiest lunch, it’s much better than frying (and so much easier!).
After all that work, I kept dinner easy by making a casserole and focused my remaining energy on dessert – Apple Crisp. I was inspired by the first harvest of Gravenstein Apples from Yakima at the local produce market where I’ve been buying my fresh produce all summer. I followed a recipe from my America’s Test Kitchen cookbook (which I bought for $1 at an estate sale!). I thought it was interesting that there weren’t any oats in the topping, only nuts (I used pecans). It was yummy!
