Saturday

I forgot to include in my last post a picture of my new apron I got at last weeks market:
So cute! I've wanted an apron of this style for ages. And it only cost $5. Score.

Yesterdays haul:
Organic carrots called Dragon something. Neither of us can remember. Organic green and purple peppers. Organic squash. Cherries. Green plums. Peaches. Corn.

We had a cocktail on the deck yesterday and picked some of our celery for our Caesars.
It was bitter, unfortunately. Perhaps it needs more time. But it looked purdy.

Half of last weeks jumbo zucchini was turned into Zucchini Saltimbocca, which I've made before.
This time I used provelone, basil and westphalian(?) ham, and coated them with panko instead of flour. They were just as tasty as I remembered. I have to decide today on what to do with the other half of the zuke. I'm thinking either zucchini cookies, which I have made before but I guess I didn't post about it, zucchini bread, this pasta, or this one, or maybe something new.

Our weather has perked back up, so we are heading out for a walk before breakfast. Have a great day, and happy long weekend to all who get one this weekend! Yahoo!

Oh how I love aprons. I also love all this yummy food, and that great black and white plate. Ok, I think I love it all!

Your pinnie looks so cute. I must admit that I've always had a soft spot for that style...

Really like the colour on those purple peppers--what do they taste like? Sweet or bitter?

Zucchini Saltimbocca...
that sounds outrageously good!

I will have to try that one.

If you are looking for a new zucchini recipe, I just made Zucchini bites. It's an appetizer that's kind of like a quiche in a way. If you like eggs, you might like it. I just posted it. :)

The celery was bitter? Was that before or after you had the cocktail? I'm guessing before!

Try it after a few...I bet you'll find it the best celery you have ever had...and Scott the cuteset thing...

I am deeply curious about those carrots!
