I love spinach and my little garden has lots of it! We've been putting it in sandwiches and have been eating spinach salad almost every night with dinner. One of my favorites has been a wilted spinach salad with a warm dressing. Watch out, Popeye!
And from the looks of this garden, I'm going to love tomatoes, too!
And zucchini! I want to stuff some blossoms with homemade ricotta!
Lillies started to bloom this week...
and the potted plants are filling out.
The radishes are woody... anybody know why? Too much water?
Not enough water? Let them grow too long? Please tell me!
We've had company and even though I've been cooking more I haven't had the time to take pictures... here are a few things we've been eating the last few weeks. This is baked spinach and feta stuffed chicken thighs.
I put some chicken thighs in the smoker and had to finish them on the grill because they were taking so long. (Note to self: start the smoker earlier in the day!) They still had a delicious smokey flavor.
We smoked some trout - one of my favorites.
I took all the meat off the bones and froze it in small packages.
I made a delicious smoke trout spread with cream cheese, chives and
seasonings... great with crackers!
More trout... this time stuffed with lemon slices and wrapped in butcher paper.
Put them on the grill and when the paper turns brown, the trout are done! Perfect!
I made some herb butter for our grilled corn. Yum!
