to the Summer of George, every summer should have a theme.
I proclaim this the summer of squash!
|Backpack Full of Squash|
I'd still walk down, mostly for the exercise, and pick up a few things that are merely staples, then head home, dreaming of persimmon season coming in another half year.
I totally forgot about summer squash.
Every stall was full of the same boring stuff AND summer squash. I love this stuff.
I made the rounds, and picked just enough of each variety to last the week, allowing me to try them all.
Most were familiar, but some are new to me. I'm sure I'll love them, and I'll try to post a few recipes, but by and large, I like things simple - steamed, grilled, or sauteed, sea salt and pepper, and some sort of oil or crumbled cheese. We'll see what happens.
My Summer of Squash begins...
This is going to be my time. Time to taste the fruits and let the juices drip down my chin! I proclaim this The Summer of George!
