I highly recommend that recipe.  Very refreshing :) .  Yeah it's hot now.  Low's in the high 70's highs near 100.  Yes, squash from the garden--dunno how much longer though...the damn squash bugs are back and they already killed one squash overnight.  Sigh.  Yes, the unpeeled tomatoes.  A travesty...but they really shouldn't even be called tomatoes as tasteless as they are (store bought).  I guess I put them in for color lol.

Can you post a link to the recipe or a general guideline?

 

Love pickley things!!!

@liamsaunt  In serious envy of your green garlic First time I had it was from a tiny Mexican market. The scent drew me in and as I mentioned in the salsa topic that is my fave allium.

I've been making soup! It's not that hot here (though it's starting to feel warm for wusses like me) and it's a great way to use up veggies and we have a lot of veggies to use up right now. I make soup for dinner some nights and we have sandwiches and leftover soup for lunch the next day. 

 

I would call this minestrone but my husband has some irrational dislike of soup by that name. So I left out the pasta and called it tomato vegetable soup and he was happy. It's got lots of wonderful veggies.

And next time a slightly chunkier version with lots of fresh peas, beef instead of chicken stock.

Fresh picked strawberries for dessert, sometimes with ice cream or just on their own. I'm a fan of the quick guillotine method, off with their heads! Maybe I should use a huller. 😄

Tonight we had burgers and potato salad. I used up some of my garlic scapes, celery and scallions for the [potato] salad greens. We always get beautiful farm eggs and we have local Warba potatoes everywhere right now. Here's the fixings. 

 

IMG_20200629_175323.thumb.jpg.669e0fc97319c2abee99e5dfcd2e7f72.jpg

 

This is a local Warba, I'm not sure how widespread they are, but everyone here in southern BC goes nuts for them in the late Spring/early Summer. They are never around long enough. They have a lovely texture, clear and white and very clean tasting if steamed but more complex if baked/roasted. One of those new potatoes that is amazing with a touch of butter and fresh herb of your choice. I guess many areas have their own Warbas, what is your local equivalent, if you have one?

One can buy seed Warbas at the local garden shop.  We usually get Yukon golds...will have to try the Warbas next year.

Masabacha - Best described as un-blended hummus. Although it is usually a little bolder on the flavoring (garlic, lemon, cumin) it often also has a touch of chili (while hummus rarely does have chili blended in it). I like mine with plenty of parsely, a little olive oil and lots of chopped onion and fresh chilies on the side.

 

IMG_20200623_155510.thumb.jpg.3b4b79bc5cc5be8e80e632e98c9ca4da.jpg

 

Also tomatoes, pickles and pitas.

 

IMG_20200623_155656.thumb.jpg.71f0ad02615df171559f853c424c0081.jpg

 

I had the leftovers a day after with a haminados egg (in pressure cooker), Yemeni schug and of course pita, onion and chilies.

I was thinking about trying a lasagna recipe I saw a couple of days ago but then remembered the last one I made and gave some to my niece and we ate the rest and everyone made nice remarks about it, so I chickened out and made the old one instead.

Lasagna is a pretty forgiving beast. Flvorful sauce, slightly chewy noodles, melty cheese. All in :)

The most important part of tonight’s dinner....zucchini flowers!  This rendition sautéed with scapes, baby purple onions and a bit of lemon at the end.

This is a style of blintz that I'm not familiar with but which looks fabulous!   While I could imagine their filling, can you point us toward a more reliable recipe?    I will definitely do these!
