Garden Fresh Recipe Series

Debuting tomorrow, I am excited to introduce... The Garden Fresh Recipe Series!  Woo hoo!
All recipes included in this series are made using one or more of the fresh vegetables from my finally successful garden!  I am so excited to share some of these recipes that DH and I have been eating over the past couple of weeks!!!

At this point in the summer, my garden has reached its peak in terms of production of vegetables and now I am struggling (literally) to use and give way all that it is producing.

In July, when the cucumbers started developing, I had two (sometimes three) Hartmans eating salads, so I could slice cukes right onto their salads every night.  Many people also enjoy just eating plain cucumbers so I found plenty of takers.  Same with the beans.  I think we've only eaten beans once or twice, since I was able to give so many of them away.

But the tomatoes are a different story.  There are SO MANY tomatoes. 

And there are about 50 to 75 more where these came from!!!

Now I know why the first thing that people ask when I tell them that I'm growing tomatoes is "Oh, are you going to can them?"

I always say, "No way! I'm gonna use them fresh!"

Ha! Young (ok, not so young) naive, me.  Thinking I could use all of the tomatoes I grow.... foolish.

But anyway, the first Garden Fresh Recipe will debut tomorrow, so definitely check it out.  It's one of my all-time favorite meals ever!

I've canned salsa and spaghetti sauce. So good!!

I actually enjoy canning. It's work but it's worth it.
