    MMmmm just had a wonderful lunch of last night’s leftovers. Broccoli from the garden (with a little cheese) and chicken kabobs made from Cornish x’s I grew out this spring and fresh garden veggies cooked in a charcoal grill. Nothing better than a meal you grew yourself!

    My daughter had a hamburger though, she wont touch the chicken since she helped take care of it. [​IMG] She is missing out!

    Shallots and garlic sauted in olive oil, add a chopped up fresh tomato and cook for a few minutes, then toss in leftover pasta....Yum!!!! Finish off lunch with a fresh cucumber from the garden.

    I've been getting plenty of green leaf and red leaf lettuce from the garden, and more spinach than we could possible eat. In another 2 weeks the beets will be ready for pickling. [​IMG]
